The steering is very hard at the beginning due to freezed suspension. I used Liqui Moly diesel antigel, whis is the best in my oppinion, although a bit pricey.

Eine kleine Kaufberatung für den ersten Smart seiner Art.
Ich versuche seine Vor- aber auch Nachteile darzulegen, Tipps zu geben und

smart fortwo cdi -12C Startup (barely)

Could be low compression, I guess? At just over 262 000 km (4 years), now.
