I balked at first when they told me the "Smart Car" was what they were calling the "courtesy car"! But they insisted I'd have to give it a chance "because it really is roomier inside than you think!"
Well I'll be, it is!

Also very fun to drive!  Lot's of people staring at you too! LOL!

I really felt at first I should feel guilty or something because "I should really be carrying this thing instead of it carrying me!"

It's really got some pep, and I love the way it shifts like it's a stick shift with out a clutch pedal! When you are driving it you defenitly feel it shift as if you were manually shifting, but it has no clutch pedal. And you can bump the shifter side to side to up or down shift it! (only has P,R,N, & D on the shifter)
Or you can use the little paddle switches on the steering wheel the one on the left down shifts and the one on the right up shifts!

And of course you can just put it in D and let it do it itself, and it's really fun to just floor it and feel it bang thru all 5 gears!

I like it! I want to get a convertible to load in the luggage bays for "extended trips!" LOL!

What a relief to know I'm not the only one.   Grin

That's a novel way to begin promoting their toy car.  I'll bet that little car get's some good mileage when not pedal to the plastic.
