  • They are the coolest, I'm in love.
  • the look like Steve Urkel's car.
  • They look very un-safe cuz there so small
  • Not for me. It would feel like I don't belong on the road. Frankly, I think they're dangerous.
  • Not for me, but if other people like them, that's cool. I can see it being perfect for like the little old lady that just drives the supermarket 3 times a week or something like that.
  • I'm sorry but People look Ridiculous in them. I was at a red light yesterday and there was one across the street from me. The guy driving looked right at me and I burst out laughing. I could understand if they got 100 miles per gallon but They don't even get that great a gas mileage.
  • They'd be a great thing if I didn't have to lug around to little kids, two teenagers and the groceries! lol No way they would all fit in that tiny car!!!
  • They would need to use the jaws of life to get me out!
  • sure wouldn't want to get into a wreck in one - thats for sure...wouldn't make it!
  • I think they are a SMART idea.Image that rush hour would be considerably shorter because you could fit 2 cars in the space of those crazy SUV's. Gas consumption is cut in half,and there would be great savings.The Japanese have been driving cars this small for 60 years,they have got it right.
  • My Husband and Son are over Six feet tall. They would not fit.
  • I'm not a fan of them. They wouldn't be very safe if you would happen to wreck. By the way, remember when I told you about my sister and said I would keep you updated on her thyroid issues? She got the test results back and they said that one of the masses seemed abnormal. She must have more testing before they can tell us anything.
  • not for me. sorry. I drive a small car now but those things are ridiculous.
  • NOT Ideal for American roads, especaialty in the winter,, and the pot holes. it is bad enough for my truck now. Sure they great for Asia and Eurpoe where the roads are smaller and well maintain. and I did see one in a wreck all right , went right under a Semi truck, it was not good for the driver of the smart car.
  • I am surprised they have come to America finally. I saw them everywhere living in Europe, and I thought they were quite weird and not ideal for safety. I would not buy one for a fear of dying in a crash instantly.
  • suicidal on American highways
  • yea do not like them way to small......i will pay more for my gas in my chevy to drive comfortably!!!!!!
  • Too cramped, gas mileage no better than a Toyota Corolla (believe it or not), and unsafe (did you know a Smart hitting a Smart is more dangerous for the occupants than a typical 2000s car hitting a typical 2000s car). No use other than the low price. Get a 2 year old small car instead.
  • A rolling coffin.......Wouldn't catch me dead in one.
  • They will never take off here. Americans like big flashy things. And parents like strong safe vehicles.
  • im short, and i don't think i could get in or out of one with ease :P
  • get back to me when they start breaking down @ 50,000 miles and no one local can fix them. They look great NEW at the mileage they get, but if you are still making monthly payments, and the repairs are $600, $800, $1000 etc for fairly routine things, they will look MUCH less enticing.
  • I am always tempted to power over them in my SUV like a monster truck.
  • I think they are cute looking and practical for urban areas
  • I think they are rediculous, and not smart at all. Unsafe (even if all cars were that size), uncool, and uncomfortable, uneccessary, and impracticle.
  • I'm too tall and big to be comfortable in one. I don't believe they are safe enough to justify the gas savings.
  • I would love to see them used more widely but I realize there are issues. For example, I'd not want to drive one where I was on the same road with trucks and other large vehicles - even S.U.V.s. So, I guess what I'm saying is that I'd like to see all of us using them but realize that there are some probably insurmountable problems using those vehicles safely without special or separate byways for trucks and other large vehicles. I don't know that special lanes would be the answer but maybe. R.V. enthusiasts would surely object to legislation that disallowed their favored vehicles and of course there are other categories of concern too. I've R.V.'d before and would not want it to no longer be an available option as a life style. Not long ago I saw a couple in a smart car on the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina - a roadway with a maximum speed limit of 45 mph, winding, twisting, up and down for 469 miles from end to end. There is a lot of motorcycle traffic on that Parkway (a part of the National Parks System) because it's so much fun and so beautiful. That couple in the smart car seemed to be having such a good time and I was happy for them - even a little envious. Also, it seemed to me upon cursory examination that the vehicle was very well engineered.
  • If you live in a cramped city where parking is a problem and you always ride by yourself then I guess they serve their function. However, I see them all the time in south Florida where space is plentiful and they look ridiculous. Additionally, they get the same gas mileage as a 4 seater (plus full trunk) Honda Civic and they cost about the same so, to paraphrase Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride, "I do not think Smart means what you think it means."
  • Great idea, but only if you live in a big city and need a small car for parking purposes. They don't get that great of gase mileage. Even a Toyota Corolla or Prius is comparable to it. Safety on them is much better than one would imagine for such a small car, but none the less, not as safe as a larger vehicle. Decently priced, but no room for anything.. maybe like 3 bags of groceries. It's cheaper to just buy something like a Corolla and car pool, if you did the math on that, it would be cheaper just to get the corolla and you would have more space for groceries, kids, or whatever.
  • The standard body lacks good looks, try some of these "3rd Party after sales" body kits .
  • They look like death traps to me. I suppose they could be the car of the future if the government first seized all the cars of the past and present. . They look like a cheap plastic utopia.
  • They are ugly, and they suck
