Smart Car Test Ride
A brief test ride in the NEW Smart Car, scheduled for US arrival in Q1 2008.





Smart Fortwo demo ride with Tim & Chuck
Updated 9/27/2013: We still continue to get hits on this video so I am leaving it up. I'm looking into the Smart Electric as a possibility of a commuter vehicle. All I need is a charging station at home and at the office. That's not impossible. This lease deal Smart has for $139 is something to consider. If you sign-up for the battery plan (which is part of the $139) then there is no annual mileage limitations on the lease - the usual deal-killer for me on leasing a car as my commute is 40 miles one-way. I'm looking into doing this but I do need to resolve the charging-station issue. The Smart Electric does not have the herky-jerky transmission of the gas model. It's quite smooth. As a commuter and for that price, it is something to consider. Updated 5/19/2012: Since I originally posted this video I have modified my impressions a bit. I discovered other cars in this same price range that have better mileage on regular gas (the SmartCar uses premium), will seat 4 people, and have a better air-conditioner and smoother transmission. All that said, I will stick with my original statement that it is a fun car to drive, handles well even on the highway, is a cinch to park, still is a head-turner, and serves a certain market niche. Good luck! =========================== [Original Comments...] This video really is for my god-daughter in Canada who wanted to see my Smart Car. So this is a Smart Fortwo demo ride video taken on Easter, 2010. As explained in the video, it takes a bit of getting used to the automatic shifting mechanism. It can be driven fairly smoothly but requires about an hour to get the right touch of the gas and brake. The brake is sensitive and is hinged from the bottom which is unusual these days. Great little car. Lots of fun. Good price. Good gas mileage, although premium fuel is needed. Basic stereo is pretty good. A/C ran well. About the only accessory not available is cruise-control. Highway speeds were good, stable, and responsive. There never was a feeling the car is as small as it it. The view from inside seems very similar to any sub-compact car, contrary to what one might think. Comfort is quite reasonable on smooth highway. However, in-town potholes and rough road can be quite jarring, as might be expected for such a short car. Ground clearance is good and one sits quite high up for a good view. Two large people are easily handled with no noticeable performance issues. Interior room and head-room is excellent. There is no need get down and crawl into the car. Seating is high and doors open wide for easy access. There is an all-electric version but it is not yet available in the USA. I suspect it would be very smooth as most electrics do not really require a traditional transmission. Overall, I think it is a great car, a bit of novelty, and probably a good commuter car. It really is limited to two seats and groceries. Probably, for a few thousand more, one could purchase a true 4-seat car that is more traditional such as a Honda Fit. If one lived downtown in a major city, though, this would be an excellent car as one can park it just about anywhere. A major trip of a few hundred miles would not be unreasonable, either, so it is quite useable all-around. Reports and videos elsewhere on YT give the vehicle good safety marks. Overall, I liked it and felt quite comfortable in the vehicle after a weekend of use.

Video of a smart fortwo showing acceleration runs, skip gear changes, and a stop and go simulation to demonstrate how the transmission shifts in various situations. The liquid container on the dash is a quart jar half filled with tap water and green food coloring added for contrast. The "slosh markers" are rubber bands.

How to start a smart fortwo that's stuck in park (ABS light on)
IMPORTANT: When you're jiggling your screwdriver or other metal implement, you (obviously?) have to also be pulling on your shifter. I forgot to mention this on the video. If you have a question leave a comment. I pulled myself out of park at least a dozen times before I was able to get to a dealer. Kudos to the folks on the Smart Car of America forums who had this figured out: http://www.smartcarofamerica.com/forums/f25/shifter-stuck-park-heres-get-me -home-fix-5578/ Another update: this problem went away by itself when the weather warmed up to -10*C. Protip: Smartcars aren't great in -30*C! ANOTHER update: A commenter has suggested that slamming on the brakes a few times will fix the issue - give it a shot first, I suppose it is easier than this trick.
