We get an inquiry almost every time that we take the car out. They range from "Man, that's cute" to "You're going to get killed in that thing..."
Today, on the DVA hospital parking lot, I got two inquiries, one from a guy who walked about a third of the huge parking area to catch me as I was walking into the hospital.
On Sunday, we were trapped in a feeder road traffic jam on the Gulf Freeway/I-45, this with a new traffic light that has not yet been properly timed. During the twenty minute crawl up to the light, we were engaged in conversation by no less than five cars that would pass us on the right (traffic turning right on red at the light allowed that lane to move much faster). All of the questioners asked what kind of mileage we got. Most asked how much it cost. One asked how it handled on the highway. And, three asked about how worried we were about getting hit by _______ (fill in the blank).
I've got the PDF with the smart Fortwo information on it, but have never gotten around to printing them up. It would be easier than having to deal with some of the comments; give them a sheet of paper and move on.
