2008 smart fortwo passion 2dr Hatchback (1.0L 3cyl 5AM)

Review

After waiting almost 12 months (current wait 18 mos.), we picked up our smart ForTwo Passion coupe a couple days ago. With gas prices of $3.55 per gallon here it couldn't have come in at a better time. So far we're very happy with it. It's everything we expected and more. First impressions: - Surprisingly roomy. Very comfortable. Great seats. I'd drive it on a 500 mile trip. - Somewhat choppy ride due to the short wheelbase, but not too choppy. - Stable and sure-footed, even at 75 alongside 18 wheelers, but you can tell that it weights 1800 lbs. - Transmission and shifting is "different" and requires some getting used to and some new skills but it's fun

Best Features

Overall design and execution - well done, high quality. Interior room and comfort is great. Active and passive safety features (I wouldn't but a vehicle without ESP).
