"Great commuter car"5.0 starson by kemojc
Pros: Improved transmission over previous years: dual clutch as opposed to single
More options than previous years
Great gas mileage (stick to non ethanol blends and you can easily get 50 mpg)
Easy to park (it is a city car after all)
Cons: Cramped width wise
Low profile tires and short suspension don't add up to adequately smooth riding on bumpy roads
People tend to smile at you every chance they get....
Summary: I have a 2009 smart for two passion fully loaded with every option save the gps stereo. Only one repair needed (for a shorted out fan, unique as i have never heard of anyone else needing this repair). I use it as a daily driver and love it. The gas mileage is better than the rating gives it credit for, however it is 100% dependent on how you drive it. The plastic body is great for northern climates where they use salt on the roads. The entire underside is covered with plastic.
It really is a better car then most people are willing to give it credit for, its not a car for everyone, but those who do end up buying it always end up loving it.
However i must say one last thing, please for the love of god, stop going out of your way to get my attention and then smile at me... its creepy.... i wonder if beetle owners have the same problem.
Thanks for your submission!
