Used 2008 Smart Fortwo for Sale
Reviews for 2008 Smart Fortwo
ForTwo - Smart Deal
I purchased a Smart Car (for two) because I wanted to get better gas mileage due to the distance I drive and the price of gas going up without paying 30k. I knew I would have to give up the comfort of my truck to keep myself from spending my entire check on gas. I am getting an avg. of about 40mpg most but not all on the HWY. Funny thing is � it turned out I love driving the darn thing. As I was told by the salesman, �there is more room on the inside than there is on the outside� was correct. I am 6�1 and have no problem getting in or out with plenty of leg & head room. Plenty of room for two people, full size people not just the select few. It is a blast to drive, it�s like driving a go-cart at 70 mph. I ended up not giving up much comfort and gained much more than I expected. Buy it, drive it, have fun while doing the right thing about conserving gas.
One's first impression of the Smart Car is it is tiny. In truth it is not long, but otherwise it is surprisingly spacious. The Smart Car is taller than many cars, the interior has more space than my Nissan Pickup, and it is quite comfortable. Despite its 3 cylinder engine it is quite peppy and has plenty of power. The transmission is different than other cars, but works quite well and the paddle shifters are very responsive. We are getting 34 mpg around town: less than a Prius, but more than most cars and at $10,000 less than a Prius it will take over 20 years to make up the difference in lifecycle costs. We really enjoy this car.
Love my smartie. Gets great gas mileage. Roomy on the inside. I get a lot's of comments. The only problem i have is the air conditioning doesn't't work. '
