5000 miles in 2-1/2 months

Posted on June 1, 2009 at 3:38am 0 Comments

I have had my red cabriolet about two and a half months now and I have driven it just over 5000 miles so far. I have not had any trouble with it at all. The wind has finally settled down and I have been enjoying driving with the top down more now. I love the car. So far I average 38 to 40 mpg driving mostly in auto mode. I added a K&N air filter yesterday. Hope everyone enjoys their Smart as much as I do.
