I recently had to decide to get rid of my Ford Ka, it had come to the end of its usefulness sadly. I decided that I would try and find an affordable Smart Car, I have always wanted one for lots of different reasons.
I have had my second hand one for a week now. I must admit that while the semi auto gear system is not the best, fuel economy could be better in the City it is a fun car to have. The seating position is high, it is very nippy if you put the foot down and easy to park.
You do get looked at driving one which is a little strange and people do want to ask questions about it. Road tax is cheap at £30 per year and insurance was fine. Overall I am happy with the car and it looks great while not being a huge drain on the environment.
