2008 smart fortwo pure 2dr Hatchback (1.0L 3cyl 5AM)
Review
Reading about smarts online I was very excited about the purchase. I had heard tales of astronomical fuel economy and how the EPA numbers were grossly overrated. After owning a smart for several months I can say that this isnít the case. It only gets about 2-3 MPG better than the civic it replaced. It is much slower, doesnít brake as well, doesnít handle as well, and has far less room. The build quality is also dubious with minor trim pieces breaking or feeling very flimsy. For such a small car with such a small engine and so few amenities I feel it should get much better MPG. If you are buying this looking for an ultra fuel saver spend a few dollars more and get a civic/focus/corolla.

For the compromises it must get much better fuel economy. Once the newness wears off it is an unacceptable car.
