Would I get better gas mileage? This smart car was parked at my softball game tonight, had to play with it a little.




I think it's an over priced death trap with good gas mileage.

My FJ had to sniff it's butt to see if it liked it or not. It didn't.

So did you have the urge to push the smart straight out of the spot and take it?

Yeah you're thinking exactly what I was when I pulled in behind it. You should of seen the $h1+ eaten look on the womans face when she walked up to us. Apparently the proud owner of the match box. I would have liked to try to climb over the piece of crap but I think I would have gotten high centered. The thing is taller than it is long! Looks kind of like a wart or something. $24K for a motor in your lap, no thanks. I'll take my 12.5 MPG over that thing.

Cool photo...
hey if your bored and look at these things they are actually built very well. They get OK mileage and I agree I wouldn't take it over the FJ but check U-Tube Smart Car vid's. They have a smart car hitting a concrete wall at 70mph. The wall is positioned on a slight angle but it's pretty impressive once they look into the ****pit to see what "might" have happened to the driver.
If nothing else it is interesting....:bandit:

That thing IS the devil! Look at the license plate!
I didn't even notice the license plate until you just pointed it out. I was overcome by the shear look of the thing.

Wow I saw the impact testing! It has a steel cage which does the trick,problem is your body will be like a scrambled egg if the 5k Fj hits it:lol:

Anyone who thinks those are too small to be comfortable needs to sit in one... I am 6'1" 300lbs and it is shockingly spacious inside!

Unfortunately the new models are pigs! A bit bigger than they used to be and really not the most impressive mileage considering....

It looks like a street legal golf cart.

I've see a few buzzing around town. Seems the drivers have an "I'm better than you" attitude 'cause I'm eco-friendly. I'm sure the cars are safe enough until they get smashed between a garbage truck and a soccer mom in a Suburban.
