Old Owner Looking to Jump Back In
I jumped into Smart when they first came into the US, acquiring a 2008 Cab, and then a 2009 Cab. Drove them each for 50+K miles, then traded for other cars. I lived in the San Francisco area during that ownership. Relocated to Tucson, AZ 2.5 years ago. Now have a yen for a cabriolet, preferably a 2017 (453) ICE. My driving needs preclude an electric (I currently have a Chevrolet Bolt). The nearest Smart Center is in Chandler (Phoenix suburb), about 100 miles away.
There are several pre-owned 2017 ICE cabs on Auto-Trader, and it looks like a good way to get into an economical cab. Given the distance from a Smart Center, the discontinued sales of ICE models, and the complete Smart pull out from the US, is this an insane move? And, I realize I'm asking the question of the Smart forum - no bias here at all.
