I'll continue to fix mine. Don't fancy the new ones. I'm looking for an 06 with a bad DSG. Most are too damn far...

In regards to an example of a vehicle that was allowed here but not in the US?

Smart OM660 Diesel comes to mind.

Fuel Economy: pretty freakin' good.

'Smart'. Yeah, double the price tag with half the utility. What a deal...


You always pay for what you get. Sometimes you get what you pay for.
It is called dope because it does make you dumb.
Thinking outside the box is difficult for some. They're afraid they'll fall off the edge of the box and be lost to oblivion.

Yeah the smartCar "cdi" diesels always confounded me: Close to $20K for 3.4L/100km vs. the ALH ~4.5L/100km...and instead of being able to drive you and a passenger, and throw a loveseat in the hatch - and CLOSE IT!! - it was you and a passenger and a Whole Foods grocery stop (don't even think about a Costco run).

Not to mention noisy as hell, utterly powerless, scary as hell when a semi went past you on the freeway...smartCar was the ultimate "look at me!" car for the people who couldn't afford a "look at me!" car.

FourTwo’s make good electric, city-only cars. They should be banned from highways. I’ve been in one on the highway. I agree, you flinch when even a midsize SUV goes by!
