New Sacramento member looking for a fortwo

Hi there, my name is Jenni from Sacramento, Ca. I have been learning about Smart cars for the last few months as I'm very interested in purchasing a used fortwo model.

Are there any recommendations for any good sites where I might be able to find a used one? I haven't had much luck on Craigslist or FB Marketplace. The marketplace on here doesn't seem to have much to offer in my area.

I don't mind an older model, but would like it to have low miles (around or under 50,000 miles). Would like to be under $4,000.

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

You might look in the San Francisco and San Jose areas. Try to drive several, so that you get a feeling for normal driving characteristics. I like to look for one-owner cars with good service documentation that have been well maintained. Get any car tested by a smart-qualified mechanic before you buy it, hopefully at the seller's expense.

Don't settle for anything less than a good quality example; patience is your friend.
And if you can live with a driving range of about 70 miles between charges, there are some phenomenal deals on smart electric cars!
