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


The SMART is not the best car for some, but, if you understand what it offers, it may be the perfect car for you. It delivers great gas mileage, fits two tall people very comfortably, can be easily towed behind an RV and is a great around town car. Don't buy the smart if you are expecting the manual transmission it comes with to shift smoothly (it is not an automatic, but a manual that can be driven in automated mode). It shifts just fine if you drive it in manual mode. If you are a baby boomer with no kids at home, or someone looking for an around town car to go to work or run down to the grocery store, or even to commute a reasonable distance to work, this may be your car.

Best Features

41+ MPG, headroom, transmission that can be driven in automated mode or standard mode and be towed 4 down behind my RV

Worst Features

make tach and clock pod standard equipment or reduce the price of them as an after purchase add on
