If you're good with just have two seats you should also check out the Honda CR-Z. We traded our smart for one are are loving it.

A Smart based on a Renault platform. Sounds like a huge step backwards.

I can call the car from my cell phone to lock or unlock it from anywhere in the US. Also has a LO-JACK SYSTEM BUILT INTO THE CAR! Did take an A$$ kicking on the smart trade-in but thats to be expected I guess...... WITH NO DEALERSHIP LEFT IN MINNESOTA NEAREST ONE 240 MILES AWAY THATS PURE BS SMART LEFT US HIGH AND DRY
I agree with you 100%. Great little car but miserable after sale service. If I could get close to what I have in it, I think I would unload it & purchase a more viable brand, like a Kia, Nissan, toyota etc.

SmartMB is really missing the boat here, An awful lot of missed sales and non-returning sales because of their lack of a local dealer.

Well the Hyundai 2012 Veloster is doing just fine handles great in the snow and has great road ability to hug into curves and handling more like a sports car! Has 3x the power and do not have to pray getting on n off the freeway like it has the extra power to merge safely and get this gets better mileage than the smart car did!!! True mileage and has on board readout in real time. Smart-est thing I did last year is unload the Smart for this car.............. Life is good!

PS: The dealership threw in auto start!

The best is one Dealership is 4 miles away and another 12.6 miles
