Does the smart have a heartbeat?

Hi, I drive a new Suzuki Alto down here in Australia. A review of the car I read said three-cylinder engines have a distinct "heartbeat" throb at idle and mine sure does. Have any of you smart owners noticed anything similar?

Agreed. It is very smooth for me too. Butch seems to believe it is idling rough and I'm sure those fine tip spark plugs would help idle, but other than that, no complaints here.
