“ Driving the Smart Car”

published 24/06/2004

Economic, safe, easy to park, fun to drive.

at times the automatic transmission can be annoyin...

I always liked the look of the smart car, so when I had to start driving one to do deliveries at work I was quite excited. Although I do not own one myself I have decided to review what its like to drive the Smart Car (this is not a fully detailed review, as I feel the driving experience is more...

“They're grrrrreat”

Small, fuel efficient

only two seats, no good for a family

Samrt cars, what a cracking idea. I'm sick and tired of seeing the usual four seat boxes on the road, it's good to see a car that is a little different and vert practical as well. How many people drive their cars every day on their own? Most cars have at least four seats and the back seats are...

Gear change can be tricky, Quirky not for everyone...

I ran a Smart car for 100,000 miles over three years. It was completely reliable, cheap to run and comfortable (great seats - even on Motorways. I made 400 mile round journeys in it. I found the flat luggage area practical (far better than an MGF I owned). With the upper boot flap open I carried...

No spare tyre. right shoulder visibility.

Having driven a Morris Minor for 24 years I found some similarities eg bolt on panels sunvisors and wipers that folded in on themselves. So using the smart I felt at home. I have now had two smart cars. The advantages were ,better breaking and ride and space. I bought my first smart in 2001 and...

“you get what you want”

published 09/09/2000

very economical

not enough motorway power

Smart cars are becoming increasingly popular on our streets, my friend has one - they are like minis but more stylish and sophisticated. The pure model for example has a 45 break horse power engine - not exactly a ferarri - but then youre' not going to buy one if you plan to make any long...

Gear changes a little slow, suffer in high winds

The majority of people who hate the smart know nothing about them, you can't complain they aren't a family car, its not like that isn't obvious when you first see it. The only valid reason any person has given for not liking it is "they don't like the way it looks". Well, all people are different...

“dangerous?”

published 01/09/2000

small cheap

dangerous too small

Smart cars have been on the roads of poole for over a year now although the majority seem to be left hand drive which is in itself a large minus. I think that they look very ugly but hey looks are only skin deep. I can see that this car will have a lot of disadvantages for starters it has only 2...

smart

dunno

The Smart car is a different looking car that drives well and has good acceleration and is great for parking. Well that just about sums it up, but it also looks quite good dispite being a very different car design that quite possibly could have looked absolutely horrific. The fuel economy is also...

No spare tyre! clutch wears out too quickly!

I bought my smart car 12 months ago, it was a dream come true, i had wanted one since i first saw them. Unfortunately i was yet to pass my test which turned out to be 28/12/03 but i bought it all the same. When it was delivered to my house it was the wrong colour it was a nasty shade of blue...

EASY TO PARK

NO GOOD FOR FAMILY OUTINGS

I must admit that I really do love small cars and find the Smart Car very appealing. I live in an area where parking can be a big problem, especially as now-a-days alot of households have a couple of cars each and spaces are very limited if you don't want to take a mile walk to your front door...

It is an awful ugly car

Could someone please explain to me what posessed Swatch, the watch manufacturers to go into the car market? It is an awful machine, it looks like an overgrown remote control car. My four year old son wanted one to play with!! Ok it may be more enviromentally friendly than most cars, and small...

“Stupid.”

published 25/08/2000

Just Ughh.

No, No, No. What are smart cars all about? You have all the disadvantages of a motorcycle but none of the advantages. Where do you put your luggage? Imagine driving it on a motorway? It must cost more than a scooter/motorbike to insure. This is a concept similar to the sinclair C5. I am afraid...
