The About.com smart car review is mostly favorable for the 2008 smart car fortwo models.
Here are some of his viewpoints:
First glance: Let's get small!
In the driver's seat: Not so small.
On the road: Drives nicely, but stay out of the wind.
Journey's end: I want one... or do I?
What he liked about the smart fortwo: Parking, looks, fun factor
What he didn't like: Getting blown around, jerky shifting, struggles on hills
Who should buy the smart fortwo: City folk who don't mind being stared at
Who should not buy the smart fortwo: People looking for maximal fuel economy... or anonymity
This is a good review of the smart car's strong and weak points, in my opinion.
Aaron stated that the fortwo struggled going up hills and in strong winds. Also, like many reviewers, he did not like the sluggish transmission. However, he was impressed with the tridion safety cell and he thought the smart car fortwo was fun to drive.
