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

Review

I purchased my Smart in October of 2009. Overall for what it is, the Smart is a good car. The Smart only holds approx 8 gallons of fuel. I have clocked the mileage at 48 mpg driving at around 55-60mph. 65-70 it drops considerably. A steady foot on the gas pedal helps. Try to avoid slowing down and speeding up frequently. This will decrease your mpg. It does not do well shifting on it's own. It lugs a lot which I don't care what anybody says is not good for the engine!! The entire car also jolts when it shifts. You are better off shifting manually. There is no cruise control. The lumbar support is not very good. Other than those few issues, its really a great vehicle. Have no other complaints

Favorite Features

MPG, Compact, moon roof, heated seats, MP3 aux jack, Bluetooth, triptronic trans.

Suggested Improvements

Better lumbar support for seats, better shifting capabilities when not using the triptronic feature.
