I will make this short and sweet. I have a 2008 Smart Passion. I got it for the fuel money savings due to my 40 mile drive to work. This car has cost me more money to keep on the road when it comes to maintinace and break downs, than if i would have got the F150 i was looking at and filled it up with fuel to go to work in. I will never buy another one and cant wait to pay this thing off and trade it in 1 more year. I take very good care of this car and it still breaks down. I have voiced my issues with Smart in the past and have heard nothing. MONEY PITT. 180 mile round trips for oil changes also suck.
