Smart Fortwo Reviews

Have owned the car since new 6 years ago. I have replaced one light bulb. The transmission is the weak spot. Always works, but not a great design. Very unresponsive and design not up the the standards of the rest of the car,(reliable though) The clear roof is prone to crazing. Doesn't bother anything. Wonderful suburban car and will do 90mph when necessary!
