My favorite things about smart
Mileage (though it should be better). Styling, of course. It's only tiny from the outside--inside it feels like a typical sized car. Fun, quirky, & cute.
About Me
Nerd. Independent. Critical thinker. Overly self-responsible. Appreciative of seemingly simple things.
My smart's name
Ummm, how about 'Lexi'.

I have a work van that I drive every day. I ride a Motorcycle every chance I get and use the smart all the other times. It goes nice in the winter, etc. I have not had any problems in any kind of weather. I have driven to Chicago, Wisconsin Dells, Kansas City, South Carolina, etc. I'm not sure how you are going to use yours, but I can assure you that you won't have to worry about the car in any kind of weather. I'm not sure if you are aware but the higher profile not only gives you a better view of the road, raises you above a lot of the impact energy in a side collission but also gives you more clearance in snow than say a sports car or even a Mini.

Hey John, welcome to the world of smart. I think you'll find it quite enjoyable. I noticed you mentioned that you thought mileage might be better. I've had my smart for over 18 months and i get my best mileage out of the St. Louis area. I blame it on our gas mixture here. I can tell you that the higher octane rating seems to yield the best mileage.

Anyway, enjoy your car... it's a lot of fun!
