Use this smart car buying guide to help you with your smart car purchase. Learn about smart cars advantages and cons from an expert...
To my fellow smart enthusiasts,
When I first started this smart car website, the America smart car had barely even begun to arrive in the U.S., so most people (like me) who were thinking of getting one had not really been able to experience them in any big way yet.
So my concept for the site was to provide a guide for decision-making about this ground-breaking car. Because the smart fortwo car was so different from anything else on the market, it seemed important to weigh your buying decision carefully.
As time has gone on, the smart car has officially arrived in the United States, and 30 or 40 thousand of us are driving them on the streets and highways of our country. So, chances are, most people who are considering smart car buying today have experienced them already... at least to some extent.
Because of the smart car's greater visibility these days, we recently decided to expand the focus of this website from a simple smart car buying decision guide to something more comprehensive in scope. But I didn't want to totally abandon the decision guide concept, because it might still be helpful to those of you who think like me... a former systems engineer... and who enjoy having a formalized process.
Your "Smart Car Guy",
So, if you'd like it... keep reading. But, if you want to click over to some other part of the website instead, that's fine. I won't hold it against you!
Here's a decision-making diagram that gives you an idea of the process I'll outline in words below:
