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

Review

This thing is way cute and very fun to drive--it's my wife's car. She traded a 2 year old Beetle because of VW reliability problems. Want people to look at you and talk to you? Buy this car. Manual shifting is the only way to go and is easy and fun. This review is being written by a guy who just traded a 2005 Mercedes SLK 155 mph roadster for a 2008 BMW 335i convertible; yeah, this little car is that good and that fun to drive. Freeway driver it isn't -- it's got the power but gets the twitches above 70 mph due to the 6' wheelbase. I can't imagine not having this car but be sure to have a real car for trips-- this is a city car.

Favorite Features

Looks, fun to drive, great features at a low price. The Passion models include climate control (usually available only on expensive cars), power everything, an immense sunroof (doesn't open)and outstanding value.

Suggested Improvements

Cruise control (not available at any price as near as I can tell).
