Purchased As New
I purchased my 2013 SMART PURE after reading tons of reviews that all seemed to point out that the transmission was jerky. I'll say this. The transmission performs just like a manual five speed transmission that is being controlled by a human being, except, with the smart the functions have been automated. Some people may see this as a bad thing. Frankly I see it as a great thing. Why? I remember the days of 5 speeds there were far less transmission problems than those that occur with automatics. I had an extensive conversation with first the service manager and smart certified mechanic as well as an INDY shop mechanic. The service advisior stated that the car had only one issue in it's American life which had to do with A/C blower motor in 2008 which has now been remedied since the 2009 model. This was confirmed by the INDY shop mechanic. This is my second car as I also own a 2007 BMW 5 series. The smart is not an M, AMG or Turbo, it is a basic car with few bells and whistles to give you problems later own down the road. I think it is adorable. I have not had any issues with it. Sure there are cars that have 4 seats and bigger engines but many people have those. Not many have a SMART, I like being different. In terms of gas mileage I have been averaging 40mpg city. I got the vehicle for 0% interest for 60 months, which basically means I have a car note of 212/month, it is the cheapest car note I have ever had!!!!! I love it!!!! I love it!!! I love it!!!!
