I thought I should take a moment to share that I'm still loving my smart car after driving it for almost four months. I live in Minnesota and drove in some really snowy bad conditions. I was thrilled at the performance. I used to drive a front-wheel-drive Ford Ranger that was terrible on slippery roads. My smart car was absolutely great. I appreciate the alert icons flashing when the stability control is kicking in. That tells me that it's slippery underfoot and I should be taking it careful.… Continue

Just got a card in the mail today from QVC. They are having a 12 Days of Christmas Sweepstakes starting December 1st. They have 12 smart fortwos to give away.

There's nothing on their website about it yet. The card says stay tuned to QVC for details on how you can win a smart fortwo.

It concludes, "Imagine a smart fortwo under your tree — it may just fit." Nice.

A glorious first week with my new best friend!

By chance I stopped into the smart dealership in Bloomington, Minnesota to ask some questions and remind myself of what a great little car this is. The charming manager told me their 2008 demo model was available in a week's time! I could hardly wrap my head around my wait for this car going from 18 months to just a week! I thought it over and called the next day to say yes. It's the best quick decision I ever made. I've had my little smartie just over a week now and she's my automotive… Continue

Congrats Julie Ann! I've had my lil Max for a month. Bloomington Smart was great to work with. I put in my reservation in June and adopted the yellow silver cabio in October. Hope to see you at a Rally this summer. My best to you and your lil soulmate. ~the other mn julie

Congratulations! I don't think I've ever heard a manager of a car dealership referred to as "charming". Just goes to show that the purchase experience of a smart is as unique as the vehicle itself!

The fun has JUST begun. Congrats. Are you planning on joining a group of other owners on Friday at the dealership at 11:30 so we ALL can go and show off our cars?

After I reserved my smart car I felt I needed something real to help me hold on for... 18... months! Yikes.

This is 1:18 scale made by Maisto. I found it on eBay. It's really perfect with two sets of body panels, silver and red, that swap out. And it has a red interior. Lots of great detail. I just don't fit in it!
