You can get a brand new 2015 (full four year warranty with basically no miles) for about the same price or less if you are eligible for the full federal tax credit. There are a few of them still left.

smark, Thank you for posting this example as evidence of the good deals in used 2014 smart EDs.


BUYER BEWARE ! Some Things Never Change.
Even in 2017, dealers are tacking on Lojack, paint sealers, upholstery protection and other clever Improvements that they assure you that you need.


The dealership you chose to heighlight, will surprise you with the installation of lojack, at the price of $695.00, added to the cars advertised price, with the promise that you need this therefore, we add it FOR the benefit of our customers. When asked if you can purchase a car without it, the answer is No !

Regarding the cheaper one at "Desert Auto Sales" - which works out of what looks like a former Chinese restaurant, the impact of the hot long summer climate of Las Vegas, and the dealers presumed ignorance regarding how to care for the battery pack, is a consideration though...

And you are certain these have spent much time there? I bought mine from a dealer in Kansas, who a month earlier had bought a dozen of so off lease cars from an auction house in Seattle. I would wager that most of these used cars have similarly been ported around.

You buy from "Desert Auto Sales" and they'll throw in a order of egg rolls or fried rice your choice.

Thanks to this post I’m toying around again with the idea of getting an ED to go with my gas smart. Found one about 75 miles from me. Would require 1 charge stop on the way home. Certified pre owned with 26k miles, no BAP, 1 owner for under $5k. Now to talk the other half into it and become a 4 car household. Lol.
