love the smart car!

we love our smart car! Matter of fact, our second one! Our first car we got T-boned, they hit me going 55-60 mph in my drivers door! My smart car saved my life!

Just what I have always wanted

I’ve wanted a smart car for 15 years and finally decided to purchase one as a second vehicle. Great little car. Perfect for running errands. A fun little car to drive

Misnomer

For something that is supposedly a gas sipper this thing is a joke. Luckily the price was enough that I didn't fall for it, quite expensive for what you're getting. I looked up the gas mileage on a fuel economy. Gov and I wasn't very happy. If your summer runt that's 5 foot tall and deliver pizzas inside the city limits of a 25 mile an hour Zone maybe this car would be okay. But if you want to take it on the road and bring it up to speed you feel like it's a coffin with wheels.
