Dana is correct. I'm on year five driving my smart and last year was the first with snow Blizzak snow tires. Driving with common sense I never had issues. However, with the snow tires I was zipping around like it was the middle of summer. While I'd never claim the smart handles better than an SUV, I was passing them up all winter...and having fun doing it.

Dana, I'm just west of O'Hare so maybe we can have a snowstorm drag race. Ha! Also, we don't meet much anymore but if you're interested there is a Chicago Area smart group.

Hi Cheryl and welcome to the group.  After the first winter I put snow tires on the rear of mine and, if it isn't too deep, it drives like a tank through the snow.  Drove from Rockford to Davenport during the Christmas Day blizzard a few years ago.  Passed a lot of cars in the ditch.

Hi All,
Hubby and I just bought a 2009 Smart Passion Cabrio and it is a blast. It didn't however come with any records on maintenance, just the main book.
Live in Wisconsin so will see how she drives in the snow. Once in a while anyway. Any comments...

Yes, I guess the snow would insulate your feet.

Hate the cold..... Need to put the top down!

I am amazed at how water tight this cute little car is. I love putting the top up and down at speed on a pretty day. The heated leather seats are divine! This little toy is such a nice piece of engineering. Delightfully effective ac and heater year round. The go kart ride is just too fun paddle shifters and all. I am still in the honeymoon phase apparently. I have learned to dart in manual not drive as in hey, I was still using that gear! There are cars comming! :p
