2005 Smart Fortwo $1,500 or OBO!!!!

Name: Sababa
Location: Chantilly, VA
Means of contact: PM
Price: $1500 OBO



Greetings,

Up for sale is my 2005 Smart Car 42 vert. It's unfortunately got a list of issues but I no longer have any interest in fixing them, so I am hoping for a quick sale. For those unknown to this model smart car, it is the international version so some differences exist between this one and the American model.

There is a lot to say about the car, including its issues but I will try to lay them out as best as I can in this ad, and update as I remember over time. Mileage is currently at about ~49,000km

Known Issues:
*Driver side door wont open from the inside (latch is broken)
*Driver side window motor needs to be replaced and window needs to be put back on track
*Headlights wiring is all screwed up, currently both low beams work
*Car shakes mid to high speeds
*Car makes strange loud noise when first started then goes away after about 30 seconds


That's all I can think of for the time being, I did daily this car for a over a year with these current issues so the car is fully drive-able, just not comfortable at all.

Really just looking to get rid of the car at this point, price is negotiable so feel free to send me an offer, I will try my best to work with you.

Thanks !

Garage
What's wrong with the door and the window? (Might help attract buyers if they knew what was wrong)

Otherwise, darn that's a good price!

Wish it were closer. Normal problems with the window and door can be fixed with $10 window regulator plastic. Ask me how I know...

Dang! Great price and it's a Cabrio too! If someone buys it, I have several 450 OEM brand new parts for it.

Looks like a G&K conversion, which will be gasoline.
