Think Smart, Smart Car that is

By
Real Estate Agent with Texas Home Group

Looking for a gas friendly car, well join the growing group of Americans that "think smart" with a smart car.

                                           

From the first time I saw on online I knew I had to have one!  I placed my reservation order for a Smart for Two without ever seeing in person or driving one of these little cars, and  I do mean little at 8.8 feet long and 5 feet wide.

The first time I got behind the Smart Car I drove it straight home to show the family, my son took one look and wanted to know did  it come with clowns.

No!, but it has a starting price of $11,990 to 16,990 before options, it is highly affordable.   Yes, that is with an engine. This hot little number is a great answer to spiraling gas prices with up to 41 mpg.  I can laugh at the gas pump no matter what the price of gas is. That's way better than any clowns!

Even Batman drives smart.

Don't let the size fool you the Smart for Two has plenty of leg and head room. Most people cannot believe how roomy it feels from the inside.

This Mercedes-Benz auto turns heads wherever it goes. Along with Swatch they have developed an eco-friendly affordable SAFE small car.  Smart for Two has received very high ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Join the Smart Revolution, come on I'll lead the way!

Neat car, and if Batman has one enough said!  I hope everyone considers smart cars even though gas prices are coming down.  It's the only way to go!  Thanks for the info!

Crystal, this is fun and informative. My wife and i were in Paris a couple of years back and saw quite e few and they are remarkable. One of my partners has one and it is fun but probably not a good idea to drive on the highway and unless you were working with pygmies, difficult to show property! Great pictures and slide show and I love the Bat-Mobile!

So what happens when you pick up that "out of town" buyer and he forgot to tell you he has brought his wife? Cozy!

Crystal, it's darling. If I needed a second car I think I would get one of these. Very cute and very practical.  What color did you get?

I just don't like the look of the smart cars, electrics, and hybrids. Why can't they take a nice Camry or Altima and simply convert it?

Best wishes for health, happiness, peace, and prosperity in 2009.

Happy New Year!
