Fun car

by Zole from Baltimore on Sat Feb 24 2018

This car suits my needs perfectly. It has more room than you imagine. It has plenty of pep. Easy to park and best of all, no gas!

Well worth the money

by Maxwellsmart from Johnstown PA on Sat Sep 07 2019

I own two, one gas, one electric. Iam 6'3" and fit very comfortable in both. Excellent gas milage and about 70 miles per charge. Very inexpensive to repair and a very safe car ( titanium fram).

A Secret, I Guess - Get 1 B4 Others Hear

by marsh0144 from Orlando, FL on Mon Jul 03 2017

Really, the best value in a car I have ever experienced (Value = Performance divided by cost)! Did you know that both the cost of the 2016 Smart ForTwo Electric and beefed up home charger have tax credits to offset about 25% purchase price? Did you know that you do not have to purchase the internal battery or maintain it because you can just rent that battery? By the way, that means you save a few thousand in your initial purchase price. The cockpit is surprisingly roomy, get in one to convince yourself! We go where ever we want in town, without worries at minimal cost. I'll bet you can not find a new Smart ForTwo Electric to buy, We were told that Mercedes Benz loses $ with every purchase.

I got exactly what I needed

by Candacem from Cincinnati on Sat Sep 28 2019

The price of this car is about the same as the tax credit, so I basically got it for FREE It is perfect for going to church and the grocery store

Complete Masterpeice

by Shaq from New York NY on Fri Oct 09 2015

I really have to hand it to the designer of this legendary masterpiece, my legs have been paralyzed after being crammed into this jumbo sized box. I carried my pet elephant in the roomy trunk with surround sound in only the finest leather, this vehicle is also extremely worth its minor cost, with 122 miles per gallon I could race my friend in his challenger and might not make it to the goal first, but I could last longer< and that's what counts. ;)

Disappointed

by peterpica from Bensalem, PA on Sat Jul 01 2017

Simply not worth the money, too short battery charge life. New ones are going to be worse until Mercedes figures out what to do with a 24,000-dollar battery replacement cost. ;-(
