Tips for buying a used smart car.

I talked over the phone for a used smart. It is a white 2014 Smart FORTWO. I want to buy it for my wife. The car has run 9,400 miles. I would like to get some tips on buying a used Smart.

My brother sent me an article yesterday. It was a used car checklist. https://www.aspirefcu.org/vehicle-checklist/ I hope this is a detailed and apt checklist.

Please share your suggestions too.

Thnks.

Not that different than buying any used car. There re a lot of used smarts on the market right around that many miles on them, and they are selling for right around $6K for the 20116 so I would expect a 2014 to be a little less. most of them were dealer demo cars or from a company called car2go that had a car sharing system. Have a good mechanic familiar with smarts look it over unless you are buying it with a good warranty or from a reputable dealer that will stand behind it if something goes wrong.

A 2014 will likely have a little bit of factory warranty left to get things sorted out if necessary.
