General Comments:

Great little car, although this site still sees it as a city-coupe, it's called a ForTwo Coupe.

The gear box is fine if you ease off the go pedal just as it changes, and you have zero gearbox jerk.

Only downside is when you close either the doors or glass hatch, you need to close them with some force because of the pressure inside the car.

It handles motorways fine at 75mph.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
