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


After one year of ownership, I find I still look forward to my driving time in the smart fortwo. The car has peppy performance, and is quite comfortable, even on the long road trips. I find that I can accomplish 99% of my driving and cargo tasks with this excellent car. Initially, I had several of the "smart car gremlins" occur, but the dealership has performed admirably with all warranty work. Here in the desert, the climate can be extreme: the smart fortwo handles the cold, searing heat, wind, torrential rain, uv extreme sunlight, snow and ice very well indeed. I am looking forward to an all- electric smart in my future.

Best Features

Heated leather seats, clear plexiglass roof, fog lights, ac/heater climate controls, brakes. (The brakes on the smart fortwo are outstanding).

Worst Features

rear hatch lift handle, re-design engine cover fastener. panoramic roof shade re-design. add footwell/cargo area/interior lighting. add a better (higher db) compact Italian airhorn.
