It's fun but not a car. It would definitely depend on the friend. Again - the Smart is NOT a car. Many people who've been disappointed with the Smart are comparing it to a car and I've decided that that is not what the Smart actually is. It's actually a go-cart. Gas mileage, performance, handling, comfort are equivalent to a go-cart with a nice interior and a surprising amount of clever storage space. So if you think it might be fun to drive a go-cart daily, the Smart is for you. I personally love it. I grocery shop, take long-ish trips in it, take my dogs too and from the park in it, etc etc. It's my daily driver.
rough to drive///how ever

I own one but before you get into one there are a couple of things you might want to know.
It drives rough, but it is excellent for daily driver. Gas consumption depends in how one drives it, average gas per month $80ish and that's driving like it got stolen.
Also, FYI. this model is made by Daimler AKA Benz. so parts are not cheap.
In reality dont let its size fool you. Pound per pound (aint a cheap car).
Tires: depends on what model you get you might end you paying ($75 to 250) each.
Gas: premium to medium
Oil: depends on mileage
Smart cars are addictive!

This car is amazingly fun to drive. It's got great gas mileage, I get compliments everywhere I go, and despite the small size I feel very safe in it. I've never been 'set' on a car. I know friends who will only drive a Ford or wouldn't think of buying anything but a Toyota. I've never been one of those people...but I am now! Smart for life!
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.
