Heheh crazy smile.gif

Those cars do seem to be a lot of fun though, I wonder how it feels to drive one?
It should have a tiptronic gearshift which should make the city driving less exhausting.

Smallest car I drove was my mom's (first edition) honda jazz, it was actually very fun not fast but the steering wheel was light and handling was cool smile.gif

But those smart cars are half the size of a jazz, I seriously would not want to test the limits of such car biggrin.gif

I have a 1972 suburban, I always wonder what might happen if I get into an accident with a smart car

It's like driving a beer can smile.gif Or a moped with a tin sheet wrapped around? My brother actually thought he was going to buy one until the test drive. A strong breeze actually moves the car left and right during driving. sad.gif

Great gas mileage but zero saftey if CRSN hits somebody in one of these with his land yacht.

The MIINI is about the smallest thing I've ever driven that still feels like an actual car smile.gif Probably a better choice if small/inexpensive is the goal.

My VW PASSAT is small by our standards here, and it's the biggest car VW makes in the states. They make one size bigger in europe (The Phaeton) but it's $75,000 and nobody in the states would pay that for a VW so they don't sell them here smile.gif

When I had my car in the garage I had this car for a few days.
Super weird feeling driving it! It was fun tho, no problem with finding a parking spot, and it had
a crazy multimedia system that my old and loved car doesn't have biggrin.gif.
It takes some time getting used to, but once I did I had to return it.

Wonder why people want to do this. I'm sure people came up with a crazy conspiracy already haha biggrin.gif.

The sport version of mini was super popular among rich kids when it first came in Turkey. Unfortunately many of those cars crashed, I guess the handling wasn't good enough for the engine plus Turkey one of the least safe places to drive, we even got a song about it tongue.gif



Passat is a good car, little boring but considered dependable here smile.gif also the Phaeton didn't sell well here either smile.gif

Lol. Man that's messed up. Maybe those punks should take up guitar so they have a way to spend there time instead of messin with people shit and ruining there day. Obviously there bored. Never could figure out why they call them smart cars, get hit and it's a coffin car.

Never liked the look of the smart car, I doubt it is as fun as a classic mini cooper, now that is a small and fun car to drive (except on long journeys)
