Another thing to check -
Check the windshield washer to be sure it works and holds a full tank.

Bought my Florida smart used and never checked that - sure enough, about a week later noticed that the tank was cracked and leaking.

also check that the climate control works fully if buying Used, there were issues with some of the original climate controllers where the onyl way you could get cold A/C was putting the Temperature lever in Over-ride.. it was easy to tell as setting your cabin temperature at even 70 degrees on an 80 degree day resulted in barely cool air from the vents until you set it down to fully cold..

this was an issue on the company Brabus we had a few years ago... if you are getting your Smart Brand new (like im about to pick up my 2015.. as ive missed the 2009 ever since it was sold years ago).. then checking mechanical things is simply a motion to avoid return trips to the dealer or if made aware of before you sign the line its an incentive for the dealer to repair them quickly so you will buy..
