A couple weeks ago I decided it was time to upgrade the 96 Regal, so I went to a car lot in Surrey BC to look at a Mazda 3 Sport. I noticed they had a white Smart passion sitting on the lot - first thought - that does not look safe - funny little car ha! The sales rep informed me that the car had amazing safety ratings.
I was just "shopping", so I went home. The next morning my Regal would not start (fuel pump issues?), so I thought it's time to make the move. My first thought was about that little Smart on the lot. After doing some number crunching I realized that even financing the car I would not be out of pocket that much when I take the fuel difference into consideration. That was Friday. On Saturday I left the lot with the Smart. Hey I have a little dog, so it is only appropriate that I get a small car
I find that the car is a great conversation piece. I am still trying to figure out how to get it to stay on my key chain. I guess I will figure that out soon enough. Fun car to drive and seems to be pretty good on gas, (I just need to learn how to lighten my foot).
Glad to know there is a community of enthusiasts.
