2008 smart fortwo passion cabrio 2dr Convertible (1.0L 3cyl 5AM)
Review
After two years, the honeymoon is over, but the marriage is still good. I adapted to the fussy transmission. A relaxed driving style works wonders. The ride actually improved with time. Winter driving is okay, but winter parking after a snowstorm is painful because the smart is so light. In the Summer, the AC occasionally blows hot air or the fan stops, and this is after the fan was replaced, a popular warranty fix, I've been told. The driver side airbag cover popped a bit. Unsightly. But that's the extent of the bad stuff. Overall, the smart is still mostly a pleasure. I'm 5'9" weigh in the high 200s and the car is comfortable and easy to enter and exit. The ragtop of choice.
Favorite Features
Price for a new convertible can't be beat. Parking space availability is glorious. Riding solo means plenty of cargo space. MPG is never under 30. No more getting stuck behind garbage trucks! Joy! Perfect size for the city. Love the rain sensor wipers and auto headlight.
Suggested Improvements
30+ MPG is good, but I want more, especially with the premium fuel requirement. A CVT would be most welcome. HVAC controls feel flimsy. Cupholders and window switches placement are not quite close enough to hand. Speedometer is optimistic. Cruise control should be standard.
