Well, the days of my cruising in 2008 Smart ForTwo are over - the road was ended for it by a car crashing into us on a highway - so I thought in closing of this chapter of my adventures I would share the few optimistic facts about my Smart - based on data I meticulously collected over its lifetime.

128k miles driven between 2008 and 2015.

Best MPG achieved: 61.75+ MPG

Longest ride on a single tank: 504 miles.

Lifetime True AVG MPG : 43 MPG

Lifetime cost per mile (all expenses included): approximately 0.35cents/mile

Lives saved: 2 (me and my son - not a scratch) (Thanks SmartCar!)

All together, this small car brought on some great adventures for me, so I hope some day I will be back to this community with another.

cheers,

Dariusz

Would be interesting to know about significant maintenance items... 

Were there any major repairs that you had to perform?
How many sets of tires?  Did you replace the clutch?

A curious 2009 smart owner!

Did not replace the clutch (didn't see a need), needed to change tires only once, two minor repairs and two lightbulbs and a battery. If I can remember that was all. I never had a car that reliable before. I am going to miss it.
