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


Very enjoyable, and great response from other drivers and people. Lots of smart fans around! I really enjoyed it. I sold it for a VW Golf, that feels like a cruise ship in comparison! The transmission is AWFUL and needs getting used to. Slow and heaving when it shifts gears. Also, it had a bunch of repairs, recalls, bulletins under warranty, that were marvelously and fully and competently addressed by Smart Center Portland. Very safe and fun on the freeway.

Best Features

Fuel mileage, fun to drive. Very well designed. Very comfortable (i'm 6 ft 4!). Exceptional customer care!

Worst Features

Premium gas. Awful transmission. Jiggly, harsh ride. Depreciates very quickly if you buy new! Cheap quality interior. If you want one, get yourself a good used one, with low miles, or negotiate if new. Do NOT pay MSRP!
