Smallest of Small:

Full story: Wall Street Journal

January 9, 2007; Page B1 DETROIT -- Even as the U.S. market for the smallest of small cars blooms, no one has seen anything quite as tiny here as DaimlerChrysler AG's two-seat, 8.8-foot-long Smart ForTwo.

This tiny 2 seat, 3 cylinder, 5 speed manu-matic only gets 50mpg. If i'm going to risk life and limb driving a death trap, it better get at least 100mpg. Europeans didn't buy it, now they try to pawn it off on the U.S. market. Thanks alot Dr. Z.

Not sure where Carman got the information that Europeans aren't buying the SmartForTwo. In Paris there's 4 or 5 on every block. Saw them all over France from north to south.
They seem very popular as town cars. In Canada they have been selling very well for the last two years.

To Carmen: You really should do your homework before you critize a product. The SMART has a 4 star crash test. Meaning it will probably be one of the safest cars on american soil. You can watch the crash test videos on youtube.com

I was wondering about this car. I have an old toyota '90 Camry' that I've only had a year now. I've heard toyotas last longer than many other makes of cars.
I looked at this car on the internet. Its not very pretty in person but its the milage that sounds so good. I'm a single older mother and I don't want to get screwed. I want a car that will last me about ten years. Do you think this is a good car for a family of 3 or 4. My income is not that great so I have to be wise.
Oh yeah when I went to the dealer he said it was atleast 15,000 for a plain automatic with no extras. That is not what the internet said. I thought I could find one for about 12,000. I have to have auto trans. I prefer power windows and the rest I dont care about.
Or do you know of any other cars that are comparible? In price?

A very basic toyota Yaris is around 12,000 and not only will you get 40 mpg byt you should put upper 100,000 miles if not 200k on it for sure, as long as you change the oil, dont abuse it, ect.
