How does Smart handle in the wind and/or rain?

Posted on September 5, 2008 at 3:42pm 14 Comments

I have a Kia Rio right now and I tell you it secretly wishes it was a boat. It hydroplanes very readily in the rain. Additionally, it blows all over in the wind. Given that the Rio is slightly larger (and likely heavier), I am worried that I may encounter the same issues. Has anyone driven it in torrential downpours this summer? I'd hate to wait a year for my smart to have it slide off the road and into the ditch on a rainy day.

Karen.. In order to get my orphan with no add on's by the dealer, I agreed to let them have my Brabus as an Orphan. My DDE for the Brabus is Nov 2009 - Jan 2010. It will be in Louisville KY at that time. As for me, I have no problem with you having it. I just got an e-mail from them today that they got 2 Brabus's in for display. I'm going to see them tomorrow, just to see what I missed out on. I bought my orphan 2 days prior to getting my Configuration acceptance.. I can't afford 2 car payments, so I'll not be getting it for myself.
