Hi Jill ! I've got the answer to your advertising scenario. I'm a 6'1" tall 320 Lb. man who has very comfortably circumnavigated the entire USA with my 87 year old Mom! We absolutely LOVE our 2008 Passion Coupe (Affectionately named "Joy") and have had her in every mountain range, desert, and praireland that the good ole USA has to offer! Anyone who says these vehicles are good for only cross-town traffic, is very SADLY mistaken. We have turned heads all around this great country, and have… Continue

Don't want to scare anybody but, my first smart, 2008 Pure,16,000 miles, caught on fire, Eklectrical fire that started in the computer.... Second one, 2009 Pure,15,000 miles 7 months old, just went in last week for the clutch actuator servo and then it lost the transmission when they were test driving it.. Trying to decide if it is my size, luck or maybe I need to get away from the Pure. Other than that, it is my car of choice to drive. I use it daily to drive to work and back (roughly 85 miles each day) LOVE the car!!

Sorry, the VW is from my last name, but always enjoyed the peculiarity of the old Bugs.

I read your scenario and being 6'4, 300 plus I can agree with the looks you get. Just wondering if you have had any issues with your car. Seem to be having problems with mine and I'm wondering if it is a size thing.

Just want to let everyone out there know that if someone tells you your SmartCar is no go for long trips,,,, tell them they are WRONG !!!... We've had our Passion Coupe completly around the USA... all four coasts,,, and had a wonderful trip each time!!! In the mountains,,, these little buggers are a cross between a billy-goat and a Disney Ride !!! They'll climb ANYTHING...and you'll have a blast doing it !!! We even ventured on parts of Route 66 that were closed and there would have been Jeeps and four-wheelers that would have been jealouse!!!
