      Lift your foot off the Accelerator in Automatic mode then she will drive smooth!! Or when shifting in Standard Mode you don't need to lift your foot up off the Accelerator...And the Car will run great in Regular Unleaded! My Dad has a 2010 and have never put Premium it it yet!! Save your Money! Dad's Getting 34 City and 43 Hwy.

      The transmission is different, and most see that as a bad thing. I bought a smart a month ago, and I absolutely love the transmission. Once you understand what the transmission is (an automated manual) and how to drive it, the car becomes a complete BLAST to drive.

      I see people saying its slow, only 70 HP etc etc etc...well, no, you are not going to win any drag contests, but the car can accelerate much faster than the way 97% of the population drive. I love my smart fortwo!

      It IS a manual transmission. The car literally puts on the clutch and changes the gears for you. An automated manual transmission.

      it is computer operated, for maximum MPGs, if you had a trip computer, you'd see that it would select a lower gear and get better MPGs than you would think in a higher gear. you'd think going 34MPH in 5th gets better MPG than 34MPH in 4th, but you'd be wrong! a "scan gauge" or "ultra gauge " would verify this. Neon is one of the most knowledgeable people on smarts that is not a smart technician.

      I don't know whether some of you already told her but YOU CAN REMOVE THE TWO PARTS ABOVE THE WINDOWS an put them into the parts-holder in the hatch door (at least in the original German version of the car). So they are gone too! And after lowering the sidewindows you actually have a full convertible car.
      Google for smart convertible and you'll see it.
      Plus it has an amazing MPG ratio and a 5 star crash rating in NCAP.

      I've also had a Brabus coupe for the past two and a half years, and also love it. Don't really think she has a complete understanding of the transmission though, otherwise it probably wouldn't be that much of an issue. It's called an automated manual transmission because it IS a manual transmission. Benefits of a manual transmission, coupled with the ease of use of an automatic.

      I just wish some people would get over the view of Smart's being death traps. Hearing that gets old real fast.

      @lilchuber18 Well no, it's not a true manual. But it has a clutch (Automatics don't have those).

      That's why it's called an "Automated Manual" - It's a manual transmission that has a computer do the shifting.

      It's a hybrid in a way. You can't call it an Automatic but you can't call it a manual!

      @lilchuber18 It's an Automated Manual. It's a manual transmission without a clutch pedal. What that means is that a computer works the clutch. On European smarts there actually is a L-shift pattern. On USA spec smarts there is a PRND and a "+" "-".

      So in short, it's a manual transmission that shifts like an automatic. But it's not to be mistaken for an Automatic because you can also shift it like a manual. So it's in between in a way. =)

      The car has a computer controlled clutch and manual transmission, the automatic program unfortunately is not a smooth as shifting the car yourself.

      The smart is half the price of the Prius and I personally do not have sufficient headroom in a Prius to drive one.
