Another factor is that most Smarts sold in Europe are diesels and do indeed get into the 60-ish MPG range. The gas motor is sort of an afterthought to get Smarts into the US market.
Seeing as how it doesn’t look this site will ever have PM or Email capabilities, I’ll have to just hijack this thread and ask you what I’d like to know.
You mentioned you had/have a 2005 Corolla.
This is the exact vehicle I’m researching (We don’t need the Silhouette anymore) and would prefer to down size.
Can you give me all the pros and cons YOU have about that vehicle? I’d appreciate it.
