    Amazing Car Compared To What It Looks — The smart fortwo is a very nice car. It's interior, unlike it's exterior, is quite roomy. It's amazingly fast for a 3 cylinder bike motor. It needs work in the transmission department, as shifting, in auto or manual, as both are available, is very drawn out, and clangy.

    Pros: Wicked acceleration, not terrible on the streets

    Cons: Shifting is awkward, not for high performance cornerring

    Uhh.... — My dad owns this car. It would be pretty nice if you have to parallel park in the city or something, but that's about it. He loves it, but it's just not my style.

    Pros: Tiny enough to fit in the most cramped of parking spots, cool removable panels that allow you to completely change the car's color in about 2 hours, head-turner, decent gas mileage (although not as good as you'd think), surprisingly safe.

    Cons: Butt-ugly, slow, extremely grabby brakes (I guess that could be good in some cases), automatic shifting feels like a beginner trying to drive a stick.

    Feels Much Bigger Than It Looks — This car looks, from the outside, like you could tuck it in your pocket, but it is surprisingly roomy inside, and really fun to drive.

    Pros: Unbelievable gas mileage, very cute, draws attention

    Cons: It can take 20 minutes to leave a parking lot or gas station, because this car draws a crowd

    Silly Mad Fun Commuter Pod! — I ordered it a long time agao when I was driving a big estate/wagon around, and it occured to me that it was very silly to drve such a big vehicle around with just myself inside it. I had no plans to buy another car at that time. Now I have the AUDI S4 and the smart, so the configuration has changed; I drive the AUDI around at weekends for laughs, and I drive the smart to work and back every day, although it turns out that the smart is a lot of fun too.

    Pros: easy to park, bright, airy, silly, fun, lots of compliments, stares etc and great mpg, low price, high tech, futuristic,makes a statement especially in USA.

    Cons: erformance is dreadful, auto-maual is horrible, paddle shifters move with steering wheel, lurchy progress.

    I Have Had This Car For Almost 24,000 Miles And Still Enjoy Driving It. — Transmission shifts like a stick shift but is an automatic, which is great if you are use to driving a manual car. Engine has only 71 BHP but can be greatly increased by changing out air filter to a K&N, air intake hose, exhaust manifold, different muffler and adding a turbo kit which you can get either a stage 1,2, or 3 turbo. This car is great weaving in and out of traffic, going in tight places other cars cannot go and turning around when other cars have to back all the way up. Plenty of people are very inquisitive about this car. Sometime this can be annoying and other times it can be fun.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: One of a kind 2 seater that has plenty of cargo room, a tight turn radius, and great on gas mileage. Has a 5 star crash rating.

    Cons: If you are not a people person, you will get asked questions all of the time. A lot of people make fun of the design of the car. Merging speed is the not the greatest.
