Other Smart Fortwo (2004 - 2007) models:

  • Summary

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What does this car say about you?

    Not really bothered!

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    They think it's cute

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Probably would. The only downside is the dreadful service from Mercedes - very expensive and sloppy. So long as you can find an independent garage who doesn't mind coping with the car's eccentricities, or, better still, service it yourself, this needn't be a problem.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Either another Smart car or a fifty year-old Austin A35, if I can find a decent one.
