2005 smart roadster coupé 0.7 turbo petrol
Great to drive - nightmare to own
I'll just list the main motor troubles...
Turbo broke down at 40k km.
Lambda sniders replaced a bit later.
At 50k km the car was drinking oil (approx. 2,5l/1000km)
Valves burnt at 55k km.
Valves burnt at 60k km.
Engine rebuilt (pistons) at 60k km.
Still drinking a lot of oil...
So more troubles to come.
It's great fun to drive; really!
If it wasn't this poor quality I'd buy another one..
(or I would still be driving the first one)
Smart dealers are rubbish: very expensive and not willing to help in unusual situations like this one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
