Purchased a used car from AutoNation, Union City, Ga. They tout that they do a "rigorous inspection" on their vehicles before offering them for sale. If that's the case, then why was one tire found to be installed wrong (directional tire and the "inside" marking was facing out). Two tires were way overinflated to 54 psi, one tire was underinflated at 24 psi and only one was pretty close, at 34 psi. When I checked the oil at home, I found the car over a quart low on oil. Had to make a Wal-Mart run to pick up a couple quarts of Mobil 1. I'm not sure what they deem "rigorous", but if they don't even check tire pressures and fluid levels, well...…….
Really Cute Car!

So far it is the best car for commuting that I have ever owned. I love the green color and the design. It is nimble in traffic and fits in even the tightest parking spots.
I'm 6'4" and still have plenty of head room. Adjustable steering wheel tilt would have been a nice addition as part of the gauge cluster is obstructed by the top of the wheel. The left foot can't be extended because of the front wheel arch. In the dead of winter (temps in the negative teens F) range is down to 35mi - a garage is a must for those cold nights.
On the positive side, I love the size of the car. Compared to the gas version which takes ages to shift gears, the electric is very smooth and takes off with plenty of pep. Very fun to drive and can always find a parking space. Short wheel base means the ride is a little bumpy, but that is not a complaint for me.
Regenerative breaking is great feature. And the traction control work pretty well most of the time. Disabling traction control on icy roads doesn't work well, since the regenerative breaking works like an emergency break and locks up the rear wheels. Keep traction control off unless you need to climb up an icy driveway, otherwise, keep it on. If you could disable regenerative breaking, it would have been a different story. But even in heavy snows, the car is a champ.
Heater heats up the cabin quickly.
Seats are comfy. The seat belt is a bit clumsy to reach, but not the end of the world.
Overall, highly recommended if your commute is 20 to 30 miles round trip. Feels like you are driving an exotic with people noticing you when you are on the road.
Julián was great. We didn???t have to haggle any prices. You pay exactly what they say your going to pay. He was very honest with us about the cars history. We were very happy with the customer service and the price

A Secret, I Guess - Get 1 B4 Others Hear

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.
Bought a car and had to get some repairs done after 5 months of having it because it is not included with my warranty. They need to do full car inspections before they let customers drive off the lot. Il probably trade the car in after one more year.
Way more roomy than you'd expect

I'm almost 6 foot tall and i still have a few inches of headroom. i also don't have any legroom issues either. the car is surprisingly peppy for being a tiny engine in a fairly weighty car. it also has no problem handling the large hills here in MO. visibility is great with its huge windows.
Very patient and professional . Marvin is very Knowledgeable about all vehicles . I had an great experience with Marvin and ALM and I would definitely recommend ALM to anyone looking for a great condition used car and Marvin as the salesman.
