    These cars are pretty new here in the US, so there aren't alot of drivers of them yet. I have been thinking about purchasing one, but would like actual owners opinions before I get in too deep. Any help would be greatly appreciated. (Picture added in case you folks call it something else)

    If you are looking for a small run about they are OK. They have cheap insurance and road tax and running costs. The boot is a good size considering the size of the car. If your over 5ft 6" tall forget them as they have very low head room. A number of people over 6ft tall driving them have been killed in accidents due to this.

    Watch out for oil leaks as they get a bit older. This is a major problem with second hand Smarts that appear on the UK and Europan market.

    I saw someone in orlando driving one and personally i wouldn't want one. You'd only need a normal size car to hit you for it to be a right off and you injured but imagine what would happen if a 4 wheel drive hit you.

    Yes, they look daft and cant be safe, once my car got crunched from behind be a huge van, It smashed into my 406, It only had a few marks on it and the smash had been incredible, but underneath it was totally warped, the guy that wrote it off said I was lucky it was a long car I was in and could absorb the impact,It got written off and I will always have a largish car now.
