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


It just makes you laugh at yourself. What a pleasant feeling. I live in a town where my immediate neighbors drive Bentleys, Mercedes, Porsches and Ford GTs (and one old Ferrari). BMW's and Audis are banned because they stink of the middle class, (but I did see a democrat once driving a Saab before they ran her out of town). And yet I must get more waves, thumbs-up and smiles from the Cougars (35-40- something divorcees) than when I drove my v12 Benz convertible. Too funny. This thing drives like a go cart, feels remarkably stable, sips fuel, makes me feel like I am at least trying to save our planet (all the body panels are recycled milk bottles).

Best Features

Curb appeal, handling, convertible top

Worst Features

Wonky transmission takes a few attempts to get it right. And NO arm rest (can't someone get an aftermarket product available ASAP?)
