What should I look for in a used Smart Fortwo Coupe coupe?

Many will take heart in the fact that Smart is part of the DaimlerChrysler group, which also produces Mercedes products. However, the Smart was designed during a time when Mercedes was experiencing more reliability problems than it was used to, so this is no guarantee of quality.

Some Smart owners claim that problems with the gearbox are common. But, because the gearchange is so jerky, it could be hard to spot a fault during your test drive. So, check the service history thoroughly for signs of past problems.
