I have 2 Smarts now, I do not plan on getting rid of any for the forseeable future......once you have it dealt with mechanically I see no reason why you would need to change it out.....yes that means you need to stay on top of everything like a hawk, but what else is there to do...lol..?

Real Life can take a back seat, lol


Aye, but they're easy to work on, and a wise man keeps on top of these things anyway.

I sold my green on green cabrio in 2012. I loved how outrageous it was. I have never been a muscle car person. We test drove many brands of cars. Almost bought a yellow convertible, but for shits and giggles test drove a new yellow Camaro. It had the V6 so was only 330 hp and had the 6 speed manual tranny. Same unit Toyota uses in its RWD cars. Like silk to shift. Long story short, bought it. Had the car for 9 years now. I have winter wheels with performance snow tires. Fun car to pop around in. I joke that I think the starter is more powerful than my smart diesel was. PS, car was made in Oshawa

something with better heat...more ground clearance and more cargo area


im replacing mine for winter with either a 4x4 kia sorrento or a chevy equinox....depends which one attracts my ambition first


i ended up choosing the equinox (which has since been sold on to another owner)...the kia needed too many repairs to the rocker panels 


after equinox left i switched exclusively to my f150 but found myself staying local during hunting season due to fuel prices so i searched for something else more suitable for travel and bush trails 


i am currently fixing up a 2008 awd saturn vue that will be my primary ...and i bought a plow for my f150 so the truck will relegated to work only (so that will also let me dump my other truck that was used exclusively for driveway plowing)
