2009 Smart ForTwo. More and more Americans are learning to appreciate small cars for their fuel efficient, easy to park natures. Taking that formula and amplifying it is the Smart ForTwo, a sub-sub compact that has been sold in Europe for years but is set to push the boundaries of Americas small car appreciation.
Capable of parking in impossibly small spots, the ForTwo is made for city dwellers. Its also made for environmentally concerned citizens, as illustrated by its 40 milesper-gallon-plus highway fuel economy. Add to that a starting price around $12,000 and the Smart ForTwo might be an alternative for car buyers who want to save cash and the planet.
MINI Cooper Clubman Video Review - Kelley Blue Book

2008 2009 MINI Cooper Clubman. When it was first introduced in 2002 the
MINI Cooper won legions of fans by offering lots of fun, style and
performance at a reasonable price. Encouraged by their early success MINI
has begun to expand its vehicle lineup; the latest edition is the Cooper
Clubman, an extended-length version of the regular Cooper.
Die-hard fans may cringe at the notion of a bigger MINI but extra interior
and cargo space, unique exterior styling and an innovative five-door layout
go a long way toward giving the Clubman a charming character all its own.

Toyota FJ Cruiser Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
Toyota FJ Cruiser. The Toyota FJ Cruiser was inspired by a rugged off-road
vehicle Toyota sold for more than two decades -- the FJ40 Land Cruiser.
Subsequent Land Cruisers morphed into the suburban-crawling SUV that is
sold today, and the Toyota 4Runner stepped in to fill the void for a more
basic 4-wheeler, but it, too, migrated upscale. So Toyota decided to meld
the 4Runner chassis with the throwback styling of the original FJ.
Welcome to our comprehensive Kelley Blue Book review of the Toyota FJ
The FJ Cruiser backs up its cool, retro styling with serious off-road
features like body-on-frame construction, big tires, available four-wheel
drive with two-speed transfer case and an available locking rear
differential. For more new car reviews, interviews and automotive news

Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the 2009 Smart Fortwo Passion Coupe. A neat, quirky, different
take on sub compacts. The Smart boasts dramatic looks, surprising interior
space and safety, with Mercedes Benz build quality. While some of it's
drivetrain characteristics offer a love it or hate it feel, you just can't
help to think it's quite the neat car! A 70hp 1.0L 3 cyl engine with a 5
speed automated manual transmission, providing reasonable power and zippy
acceleration for city traveling. Although no race car, it's definitely a
fun and unique vehicles for those looking for a fuel efficient vehicle that
strays away from the norm! During this presentation, we will take a 1st
person look at what the Fortwo is all about beginning with the start up,
performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data, and build
quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior and
exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only get
from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight
key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any available
options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video without the
good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

Smart Fortwo demo ride with Tim & Chuck
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
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!
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
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
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.
