Default New Car.

Looking at getting a new car. Well the wife is looking to get a new car. Anybody have any suggestions? I own a Jeep and that's not going anywhere and when I offered to find her one she laughed. Only stipulation is no more jeeps.

Look at a Ford Fusion. Great handling and performance, high quality and designed and made in North America.

Do they sell the Smart Car in the USA?



"Smart" is a subsidiary of Mercedes Benz, and the Smart Car is made in Mercedes Benz factories by Mercedes Benz employees for the Smart Car Company. It has a 3 cylinder diesel engine with a 5 speed automatic transmission and gets over 50 miles per gallon on the highway (although it's really meant only for city driving). You don't feel like you're in a small car when you're inside it because it has about the same amount of interior room for two adults as the front seat of any other car. You only notice you're in a motorized shopping cart when you see yourself in the reflection of a store window.

The passenger side seat folds down flat and the doors are very large so that you can actually fit a lot into this little car if you need to move a lot of stuff.

They're becoming VERY popular here in Winnipeg, and the people I've talked to that own them really like them. Also, they can handle our winters very well from what I can see.

It's got a surprisingly good crash test safety rating for a seriously small car.



I don't know if the engine is in the front or the back. The $19,000 price tag is in Canadian dollars.

The tire on my truck weighs more than that little thing.

They sell a gasoline version of the Smart Car in the US. It uses premium fuel and doesn't get that great gas mileage, so it hasn't been a roaring hit, given the selling price and what you give up in creature comforts.

Cute, though.

TX, what about a duece and a half. You can get one in pretty good shape for under $2,000.00 from the govt liquidation site. It will go anywhere, runs on any combustible fuel and you can carry anything you would ever want.

...just a thought. I sure want one...
