"Worst new car I've ever driven"0.5 starson by robble1
Pros: cute. gas mileage but there are other much better cars that are just as good on gas mileage.
Cons: No power ANYTHING.
Dead steering feel - no feedback. Also hard to turn the wheel at slow speeds.
Loose steering - turn the wheel left and right 3" each way and the car barely responded.
Brake pedal pivots from floor.
Brakes strength was just "ok"
Summary: I can't believe someone would actually buy this car when there are other sub $15k cars that are MUCH better.For the people who are quoting the crash tests as proving how "safe" it is - those crash tests represent what would happen if another vehicle of the same size/weight hit it. So yes, it's safe if another smart car hits you. If another normal sized vehicle hits you, you will be toast - no actually you'll be the strawberry jam on the toast. Do a search on youtube for top gears crash test of the smart and for another top gear video showing the handling - or non-existence of.
