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

Review

Pros: Attention-getting, economical, affordable (for a convertible) Cons: Weak warranty (but I hope I won't need it -- this is a Mercedes!) I challenge you to try to find a convertible so elegantly designed or better engineered than this. And for $16,590. You can open the top from a distance with your key (nice to cool off the vehicle before you get to it). The side rails come off and store in a special compartment in the rear designed just for them. This vehicle is put together with true attention to detail. Some whine about the transmission, but I'm used to driving a five-speek stick so this one doesn't bother me at all. In semi-auto mode just pretend it has a clutch and go!

Favorite Features

Big enough for me (I'm 6'3). Small enough to fit anywhere. Very attention getting on the road and even when parked. I'm always being asked about it. That's fine most of the time ... except when I am late for something or otherwise in a hurry. Still, it's loads of fun to own!

Suggested Improvements

Cruise control would be nice.
