2008 smart fortwo pure 2dr Hatchback (1.0L 3cyl 5AM)
Very fun to drive, thrifty, excellent conversation item.The ride is a bit choppy and slow, and the transmission is fickle.I always look forward to driving it, and I consistently get 40mpg.It runs fine in 89 octane MIDGRADE, spiked with 5-10$ of 92 octane premium per tankful. Defective radio, changed under warranty within 5 min. by the dealer. The gas gauge has been a bit whimsical, but worked its own bugs out (healed itself). Catalytic converter hot air pump failed: another 5 min. stop at the dealer for a replacement. The driver's side mirror fuzzes a bit. The starter lock has a personality. Tinny speakers too.
Style, thrift, character, economy, spirit, smiles all around....and UNIQUE
