Smile New guy wants to buy a Smart

I'm in Eureka, Montana. I'd love to buy a Smart. I'll probably buy a Smart Pure for $12k when they are available. But I've never driven or ridden in a Smart fortwo and spending that much money without a test drive isn't in my blood.

Anyone live close enough to me that we could hook up?

There is a 2006 Smart diesel that I'd like to buy from Canada, but I've been told that the diesels cannot be imported

BTW - If anyone knows how to important a diesel, that would be my first choice.

I believe the diesels are a bit easier to get into the country but you need to think about if something goes wrong, where will you get it repaired?? I believe it uses a Mercedes motor so you will most likely have to get work done there.

The smart Pure has been available in the USA for almost 4 years now, A fine choice if you are looking for a basic transportation unit. I would suggest the electric windows as the window crank is not in a good spot (at least for me) it hits your knee if you are tall. I do like the steel wheels better than the aluminum rims, a bit stronger in my opinion. Get yourself to a dealer and take a good long test drive.
