Fun, Reliable, Roomy, Efficient
May 15, 2019
In 2018 bought a 2013 smartfortwo one-owner coupe with 70,000 miles (yes!) and it runs like a brand-new car. The driver/passenger interior area is roomier than our other cars. Yes, it's a two-seater, but you know that when you decide to get one, just like a Corvette buyer is paying a lot and getting no back seat. Ever take note on the freeway how many cars have one occupant? So many that the car pool lanes are usually empty. Gas and maintenance costs are minimal. Just got a new battery because the original one died after 6 years and 70,000 miles. The local Mercedes dealer gave it a thorough inspection for us after purchase from CarMax and did not charge us a penny to do so! Only downside is that it gets no respect from other drivers, but that's okay. It is like a high-tech carnival ride, and the paddles make shifting a breeze. We use it for freeway commuting sometimes and it keeps up with the pack just fine. Wish we had gotten one sooner.
