2008 Smart Fortwo Passion Coupe: Things are as close as they appear.
July 07, 2008
Has this ever happened to you? Upon leaving the filling station you're met with a strange new clunk and then, upon visual inspection out the side view mirror you notice you've forgotten to shut the fuel door. And to screw-in the filler-cap.
Well, in just about every other car on the market, to remedy this you'd have to pull over, get out of the car and fix it. What a pain!
But if you were to be driving the smart fortwo, and had a nearly six-foot passenger with moderate levels of flexibility, all would not be lost. Just ask him to reach out and screw it back in while you continue to drive as normal. No time lost. No unnecessary stopping.
