When people ask me about the smart and snow, I tell them it's 80% driver and 20% car. I had an all-wheel-drive RAV 4 and I was never complacent about the weather. My caution extends to driving and choosing when not to drive.
I didn't forget about winter tires. . .if you don't have them, wait for the plows to clear the roads or stay home. Slow down. Leave lots of space. No sudden braking or steering moves. Most of what I learned about driving in bad weather came back to exercising good judgment. Oh yes, and that includes not believing that all-wheel drive makes you invincible. So, adjust the percentages as you please, I still put more weight on the driver. Bad drivers in good cars with good tires are dangerous. Comes down to knowing your limits and the limits of your vehicle. My smart gets me through. I don't hide from the weather, but I try not to be stupid. Good luck New Hampshire and the rest of New England, you're having a bad year.
One of my good customers in New Hampshire and a repeat smart owner has a set of winter tires for the 451 (2008-2015) smart fortwo available. Anybody in the region or willing to travel to pick them up in NH can let me know and I can connect you with him. He says they are in good condition but...
I have not spotted any in New Hampshire, yet but I am looking. I wonder if my Smart Fortwo is the first in the Hampton NH area(?). It still has NJ license plates but I am working on getting NH ones that are customized. I have not chosen how to customize them, yet. :nerd:
I was e-mailed that there might be another Smart car on the street I live on. It is a short street with only a handful of houses. It would be interesting to see another one nearby.
I have seen another black silver Smart near where I live.
