Re: couldnt convince my mom to get a mazda...

yeah if you search that smart car is pretty amazing and definitely wouldnt ever expect so much power.

They are everywhere here too, Mercedes built their smart car dealership on the side of their used car lot building. My boyfriend and I see like easily 60 for sale, go to check them out and they were all sold! Its like Jesus Christ WTF! Actually these little things are quick for only having 71hp, then again look how small they are. I find it funny how you can park 2 in one parking spot lol

Steph I would totally get a black one with hot pink sparkly stars painted on it :P

oh and the scariest thing about seeing them around here is I live on US19, one of the top 10 most dangerous roads in the country! I would not want to drive a smart car on this road....EVER

I saw a yellow on Rt 15 on sat going to the great falls meet. We were going 60 and they were able to pass with no problems.

Re: couldnt convince my mom to get a mazda...

The Smarts are nice cars... Got to drive one a couple of years ago in Germany's Autobahn. Of course, strict right lane only while SLK's and Lambos and even Volks were whizzing but we were doing 70 or so on the little TDI... Which is more than enough to get a speeding ticket in the ol' PR.

We had a Fortwo Brabus model, not as fun to drive as the 3, but quite peppy. My understanding is that the ones being sold in the US are gasoline only.

Basic research is what I'm doing when I don't now what I'm doing -

Re: couldnt convince my mom to get a mazda...

the weirdest thing about this car is the transmission. its like a manual but its an automatic. as you accelerate it shifts the way an auto does but each shift feels exactly like a manual. its not a smooth shift transition like it is in a regular automatic
