Great 5 Year Relationship. — Never let me down and always ready for fun. Easy to maintain and great on gas. Surprising on just how much you can fit inside, especially with passenger side fold down seat. The car also did better then most front wheel drive cars in the snow.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Grat parking and fun around town with the top down.

Cons: Small tires make for harsh entry and exits out of NY pot holes.

Smart Fortwo Passion — perfect car for NYC, great alt to taking cabs/subway, always can find parking. If you can get over the horrible transmission and don't do too much highway driving (max 2 hours) it's a great little city car. If you shift it manually you get a much smoother experience, not sure what they were thinking when they produced the transmission!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: best city car, can fit in the smallest spaces, mpg, no maintenance issues, descend cargo room  

Cons: noise, transmission, driving over 75 mph takes some nerve

A Nice Surprise — After 37,500 miles, I have to say this car has been one of my biggest surprises. I bought it because I'm cheap and I liked the fuel economy, but hated to give up all the creature comforts. But this little car had legroom, and lots of options. I thought I'd probably not like the little car, but I was willing to make the sacrifice. But the car has won me over. It's surprisingly roomy, easy to own, even fun to drive. I love the power-convertible roof, the heated seats, the sound system. I've owned 25 or 30 cars, from M3's to Grand Wagonners, Sentras to 300D's. This is the only car that has surprised me, other than the M3. Both were a lot better than I thought they could be.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love this little car.  It's been an amazing what you can get into it.  It's a great little commuter car.  It's also fun to drive to events . . . parking is a dream.  You can shoehorn it in to spaces that no other car could fit in to.  It takes up about half the space in my garage that a normal car would.

Cons: It won't go over 100 mph.

Worst Car I Have Drove And Would Not Recommend To Anyone —

I don't even know where to start with this car. When I tested this car all I wanted to do was to see what all of the hype was. Everyone that I talked to that owned one of these cars said that they were the best things they've ever been in. All I can say is I don't know what's wrong with them because this was the worst car i have ever drove in my life. If we were in a large crowded city then this interview would be totally different, but where I drove this car most of the roads i was on was motor ways. The car that I drove was a Pure model which is a nice way of saying it cheap with nothing in it. When they were building this car they stripped everything unnecessary to keep it cheap and lightweight, but i think that they went a little to far with this. With a car these days there are just things that should be standard on a car and power steering is one of them, and i don't think Mercedes-Benz got the memo on that one. When accelerating in this car the only way to star relatively comfortable is by hardly touching the gas pedal because when you do go hard on the pedal the shifting is absolutely horrid. Using the clutch-less manual transmission shifting is supposed to be made smoother but in the Fourtwo you go flying forward and then flying backwards every time. Another thing that is horrible in this car is the top speed. 144 km/h is higher than any speed limit that I have seen but still we all know people dont go the speed limit. And if your in a hurry or trying to overtake someone this car just wont cut it. The interior on this car was just hideous. Although one good thing about this car is that there is a lot of room in the cabin as the result of no boot. But the color choices are ugly and everything was made from cheap products. The exterior styling of the Fourtwo isn't much better than the interior. It's ugly, made from cheap materials, and the panels just fall off.

Pros: Small, Good mpg

Cons: Poor Performance, Bad Styling, Cheap Materials, Not Safe

I Am Glad I Bought It, It Was Worth It. — Pros: Economical Great for daily commutes A zippy little car Does well in the highway Great gas mileage Automated Manual Transmission Computer does the clutching in manual mode. The computer does the gearshifting and clutching in automated mode) Easy to maintain Well built, extremely solid cabin Dent resistant exterior Double rollcage (There are two pipes one inside the other for durability) Extremely small parking spaces are not a problem Bumper-to-bumper traffic are not a problem Very small turning radius Does well with sharp turns Low center of gravity Many performance upgrades are available via aftermarket Turbo upgrade is available for it Cons: Needs more POWER! Even after that..needs more! Scared to drive it at first, but once you are used to it, the fear goes away.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great gas mileage, good for the daily commute.

Cons: None

I Like! — smart fortwo BRABUS - pretty good performance for a city car. And small enough to fit in every gap. Always park right in front of the place you want to go to. Consumption of Gas is another plus - it is so cheap to drive one

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: it`s small

Cons: Top Speed

Great,practical Everyday Car That Evertyone Should Have — Perfect for getting around even if there is only two seats.Reliable up to date with gadget.Best car for a first time buyer. Exellant mileage. If you get a dent all you do it quickly and easily change the panel at the nearest garage. It is great for those small space so you can laugh at your friend who had to park up the road because the space was to small. I would highly recommend this to anybody be it a first time buyer or a parent.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cheap to run and insure and is very safe

Cons: Make sure it not been mistreated
