2006 smart roadster Light 0.7 from UK and Ireland
Drive one and you'll try to find a reason not to buy it!!
Leaks from soft top.
Amazing fun to drive, a raw driving experience as expected from a roadster at an affordable price, keeps me smiling.
Fuel consumption is great 40+ mpg (even with heavy driving, which I can't seem to help doing).
Expensive to service from the main dealer, lots of private outlets out there instead that give better, more affordable results. Parts are reasonably priced.
Lots of nice attention, from such a supposedly uncool car,'nonsense'.
These gems are prone to leak from the door and soft top seals, but the pure handling and surprising acceleration grunt from the turbo gifted engine far outweighs the drips on a rainy day.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
