2008 smart fortwo - city coupe Four Two 1.0L gasoline from North America
Fun to drive, cheap transportation
Nothing in the 5 years I've owned it.
The car has been 100% reliable so far. Very good on gas (requires 91 octane) averaging 42mpg mostly city driving.
The car is roomy for 2 people and has excellent visibility, easy to get in and out of, and very comfortable to drive. That being said the suspension can be a little harsh on rough roads.
The semi automatic transmission may not be for everyone, but I found once I was used to it I kind of like it. It's very easy to get around the city and a breeze to park. The car will cruise 100/120 Km per/hour on the highway no problem and is very solid.
The car is surprisingly good in the winter for a RWD car as the motor is in the back between the wheels and it has stability control.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
