kelsey mays editor of cars.com

I am currently so mad I can hardly type. Editor of cars.com posted to yahoo news the worst 10 cars in his opinion and smart twofor was last. By his comments he obviously never drove a smart. Why is this fool a car editor. He said the car handles like an suv. Obviously a lie. My wife and I along with 103 smart cars just finished driving the dragons tail in north carolina and this car handles like a sports car. I personally think smart car lawyes should sue this fool.

Wasted Days and Wasted Nights?

Wasted Days and Wasted Nights?Poor Beverly (my SMART car). She had to go to the Jackie Cooper Dealership in Tulsa, OK today. She had an appointment at 11:00 a.m. to get duplicate keys made. Unfortunately, no one bothered to tell us that they did not have the necessary information from the manufacturer to make the keys.

litter container

What is everyone using as a litter container? In my last car I hung a bag from the armrest, which lifted up. I usually have a passenger so tossing into that seat isn't an option. Any suggestions? Thanks, Jan
