It is fun to drive. Gas mileage is great for a non-hybrid/gas-only vehicle. (I wish they marketed the diesel model in the US). Easy to park. You don't have the sense that you're in a "micro" vehicle. I tell people that it is small on the outside and big on the inside.
Great car....Great deal
2005 Smart FortwoAlan Randolph - oak forest, KY01/25/2017
Looking for economy car for my part time job which involves alot of driving. Also needed a small car to tow behind my RV. The Smart car was the perfect fit. Not only does it get great gas mileage (close to 40 miles/gal), but is also the perfect size to tow behind RV. I've had the car close to 6 months and couldn't be happier. No problems with the car since I purchased it. My p/t job requires a lot of highway driving and the car handles like a charm. The down side is it doesn't have cruise control. It would be ideal if it had that. One other drawback is the suspension. The shocks offer little help with bumps. Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase.
Despite its small size, its VERY roomy inside. I'm 6' tall, 300lbs and have plenty of space. The 3 cylinder engine is in the rear, and still has plenty of cargo space for groceries, or anything. I've hauled 4 bags of 80lb concrete no problems. Even a full grocery shopping. One thing that people don't realize is that all smart cars use a MANUAL transmission, that automaticly shifts. So there is a delay when the car shifts. You also must wait a second when you go from reverse to drive, as it has to actually shift itself over. Its a bit odd at first, but you get used to it. I've taken many trips out of state with it and it handles wonderfully, even at 90 (its speed limited to 90). Its also pretty peppey for having such a small motor
