Upgraded To Cabriolet!
By realsmart1 on


2009 smart fortwo passion cabriolet 2dr Convertible (1.0L 3cyl 5AM)


I originally bought a blue with silver tridian coupe back in July... had issues with water retention in rear hatch...was given a cabriolet smart loaner during repairs...fell in love with convertible...immediately upgraded to a red with a black tridian convertible because of 1.2% APR financing promotion, despite $3000 depreciation for trade-in . I have no regrets...LOVE the convertible. Read my other review for coupe, same applies to this car.

Best Features

Very flexible convertible--can open and close at any speed; closing convertible last minute before it rains therefore can use on days with rain in forecast! Love the tachometer & dash mounted clock, quirky but sporty. Very effective fog lamps, casts a wide area of illumination.

Worst Features

Doors are too rigid upon opening and sometimes difficult to shut completely. How about a diesel version in the near future and/or all-wheel-drive? A real Brabus Edition w/150hp would be nice instead of only 70hp. Other colors such as metallic red, metallic purple, metallic lime, metallic orange...
