Smart and Sassy: The Smart 42

Really kind of an "ehhh" review: http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news0.../11/smart.html

Lots of inaccuracies, wrong model in the picture, but generally positive.

Pretty interesting; they referred to the red interior as orange (see Mr_Cash thread) and came up with 42 instead of fortwo - didn't they read any of the smart handouts? And where did they get the warranty info from? Still nothing official from smart, so are they just passing on the rumors? Having said all that, the more of these reviews out there the more interest in the car will grow.

Wow...the car in the picture is the Chinese ripoff of the Fortwo.
There's only one word to describe this article......failure!!

Will post a link as a separate post...since I need 3 total to post links, but I'm going to send an email to this writer.

Yeah and seeing some of the EuroNcap testing done on Chinese look alike cars, I wouldn't want to be caught dead in one(pun intended).

I just spend too much time on the interwebs...


But I did send an email with that same information in it...along with asking how they came about the warranty information, and telling them that the car is not the "42"!
