|Rambo4||Absolutely you should get one. I had to get my 5th one (2ea. 451s & 3ea. 453s) b\c wife can't drive a stick. I take Minimus Prime on the ATV trails where a 4x4 can't.. ..trees and debris.. ...heh heh! I got it that these things are disappearing faster than the Pinto and Edsel combined, but I wish Benz would have given the 453 a fair chance. Yay me and Minimus!|

Do your due diligence and understand what you are getting into, very few people buy these cars, they lease them and that's why you see a flood of used ones on the market. If you don't know the workarounds they'll bleed you dry and after awhile that smile goes to a frown.
Same thing with electric cars, no one buys you lease because from the moment they install the batteries at the factory they are dying. A 3 year lease then get the hell out of it and into a new one. Let the next poor sucker behind you drop some serious repair coin on it.
But back to your Smart question, just understand who makes it and it starts at $25 dollars for them to say hello to you. And if you are forced into using them bring a jar of Vaseline, it's design to forever have their hands in your pockets.
I own one because I like to roll outside of what society considers normal and there will never, ever be another car like the Smarts, ever in America again.
Read that again out loud to yourself.

I liked mine so much I bought a 2nd one yesterday. It may not be right for everyone but for me they fit the bill.

|jkjahobbs||We just purchased our third smart. A 2017 Prime Cabrio. Yes we still have the first two. I'm thinking I can alternate days on which one I drive to work. LOL Go ahead and buy one, you will love it.|
