I like it with the little suicide doors instead of 4 full normal doors. I've always liked the smart cars, but for the price and size I just always thought they'd get like 70 MPG and they get just over 40. Jeez, I can buy an 15 year old civic and get 40 MPG. Or if they cost about half of what they do. Again for perspective, I can buy an entry level Corolla or Civic for about the same as a smart, maybe just slightly more.
I've had the car itch for a while now. And I'm out of all my warranties now except the hybrid warranty. Almost bought a G37S a few days ago.
I would buy one of these electric-mostly cars that are coming out soon. Since my commute is only 9 miles each way, I could easily stay on battery almost all the time. I would have to buy one that has a regular engine though in case I go on a longer trip. Electric only wouldn't work, but something like the Volt or Leaf definitely could.
I'm still mad at Smart for making a car the size of a sardine can that doesn't get 40 MPG and needs premium gas. Come on, my 1990 Civic got 42 MPG on cheap gas.
