2015 Smart FortwoJohn Balentine - Las Vegas, NV04/09/2017
While the Smart Car is really small on the outside, it has plenty of room for two big
people on the inside. While the trunk area is small too, it is adequate for several bags
of groceries and other shopping needs.
The engine is small too,,but it is geared for plenty of speed around town and on the interstate. The manual / automatic transmission takes some getting used to, but it
works fine and predictably
Overall we are really enjoying the Smart Car and marvel at the German engineering
to include so many luxury amenities in such a small package. It handles and drives
great and is very inexpensive to own and operate.
Consider buying this car only and if only you are gonna use it on a daytime job to home and small courses. 1 hour max on the Highway. The driver is gonna go crazy with the noise and handling of the car on the Highway. Don't plan big trips with it. It wasn't designed to do it. It was designed to park anywhere, and cost nearly nothing in fuel.
My initial misgivings were unfounded (might not be perky enough for comfortable interstate highway speeds, not high enough for practical sight-lines--both completely unfounded). It's cute and very economical to operate and because it's pretty much entirely white and shaped as it is, it resembles an enormous Storm Trooper's Helmet.
Nothing compares to the feeling of the wind whipping your hair back as you cruise in a well-built convertible. Well, almost nothing—the feeling of getting a great deal on your vehicle purchase is definitely a close second. You can enjoy both of these awesome sensations at the same time by selecting a high-quality convertible that sells for less than $20,000.
