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


I drove the Smart for 14 miles each way to and from work for 6 months, enjoying the good mileage and fun handling. Parking was easy and it was a comfortable ride. The problem I ran into was a lack of stability in windy settings. I had a scary incident when I was blown into the lane next to me as a result of driving on a windy day and having a truck drive past me, which moved me over to the next lane. Thankfully there was no one in that lane, but it could have been a real problem. As a result I sold the car the next day. I don't think this is a typical situation and in no way blame the design. It's something to keep in mind when you are considering the Smart.

Mileage, easy to park, heated seats.
