I emailed the OP about this car, and he is back and forth on keeping it - he just may. I thanked him for his time, but I don't know that it is necessarily 'for sale', wholeheartedly - and for the best reason; staying in the Smart family!

o8 cabrio for sale.

Skippy. Since it has been so long since your last post on this vehichle, I assume you have long-since fixed and decided to keep it, or disposed of it, but on the off-chance that you just parked it and went on to something else, I would definately be interested in it as-is. I have been driving an 08 for over 10 years now and would like one as a first-car for my semi-handicapped grandaughter. Drop me a quick PM if you would , pklease. Sincerely, Shop Hermit in Kansas.

Just a quick heads up; this is not my car - this is the the original posters' car, halmc. I was merely an interested party.

I didn't want you reaching out to the wrong person and being upset I didn't reply.

Thanks for the note. I drive the car every day, or near about every day. I re-installed the top, but have not cycled the top. It is water tight. The airbag light is still on. Slapped on a nice new set of tires about 1500 miles ago. I've sorta lost my appetite for selling it that cheaply cuz it serves my needs fairly well, tho the airbag issue does give me some pause. Still, I've been thinking of a change lately. If you're interested we may be able to come to terms.

If you're still interested in selling at a good price, I may be interested in buying it.

halmc, my dad got into an accident in my ‘13 and none of the airbags went off. (Unfortunately it was totaled), but I believe in a lot of cases one does not want them going off in the first place, meaning sometimes they do more damage than good.....

Hit 2 deer lately and air bags didn't go off either time. First one , I had to replace the header panel across the front end as it was broken, last one was just the fender and headlight.

I'm not inclined to sell the car for less than $2k cuz I use it all the time. With respect to airbags, generalizing from the specific almost always yields flawed results. Sometimes in crashes, seat belts kill people. Most times they don't.
