Me and a good friend were out seeking out a car for him as he has none right now. Not just any car, but a 2008 Smart passion coupe with only 28,000 miles on the odometer. I was shocked to hear he even wanted to look at one in the first place, but then again, after he has been in mine so many times guess the bug bit him good. Here is the actual car that is on the mind.

Used 2008 smart fortwo For Sale | Vienna VA .

It is clean from what i see, he even activated one of the paddles not knowing what it did, and i was able to spot the car had the major update to the transmission, which included the paddles being able to activate without using the shifter. Of course i switched it back getting him to drive in D mode only. He goes to my church, so if this car was his, it would really get some buzzing going. Of course some of my friends at church would think i conned him into it. :D Of course i am not letting on to anyone that it is a Smart he is looking at.
It is a matter of doing some money crunching and insurance shopping, but still what a weekend that was, even with hot temps. Naturally, my next quest will be to get him on one of our events. Skyline anyone?

At one time, something was mentioned about some sort of incentive for bringing in new customers that buy a car, it never happened to my knowledge. Didn't keep me from being a cheerleader for smart.

Why?

Anyway, looks like a good price. Hope he gets it, and appreciates paddles.
Not sure I would buy a 2008, but if you say they fixed the jerkiness of that chassis, OK. That said, the price does not look good to me. I purchased my 2009 Passion (with installed Navigation) in December 2010 with 12K miles on it from Euro Motorcars in Bethesda for $9300 as a point of reference.

He did see another car of similarity for 7500 with more miles say about 57,000. Very iffy for me since my pure has 49,000 now. It comes with a comfy package. Will post a link later.
