Introduction: my wife and I, proud owners of a 2008 SmartCar Passion Fortwo

Hello fello smart car owners! I am glad I found this place as I have a few questions.

We have had the car about a year. We love the gas mileage. The car can be a bit quirky at times.

We are currently experiencing a snow storm and it is definitely not the right car to drive in any snow :-/

I have a few questions so I am going to find the appropriate forum to post them in.


Thanks and nice meeting you all!

Welcome to SCoA!

You don't show your location or mention how much snow, but with proper winter tires the smart is a fine snow car - up to about 4 inches accumulation...

"Quirky"? Yeah, you could say that. Depending on your point of view that may be a good thing, or not. I drove my 2008 cabrio for about seven years before any significant problems though, and I can't make that claim about any other car I've owned over the past 47 years. The problem is with the cabrio roof itself, and apparently you don't have a cabrio.

My very limited experience driving my smart in Winter conditions {with all season tires} impressed me more than alarmed me.

Welcome from the great Midwest!!

Hopefully your smartie is a good kind of quirky. As for winter traction, give the smart some good tyres and you'll plow through the snow better than many 4x4s on all seasons can.

Feel free to post questions in the general smart discussion if you want, it's usually the easiest place to put any question!
