Smart Cars Come To Gainesville

Smart Cars are available through Daimler Chrysler. Called "Smart For Two", this vehicle is just that-a car for two. Innovative in concept, the Smart Car features 40 miles to the gallon and is economically and environmentally friendly.

This car, popular among those who wanted fuel-effciency, is low maintenance as well. The Smart Car was released in 2008. In the Gainesville, Ocala area you see a few on the road. Annually, over 120 thousand Smart Cars are purchased in over 30 cities.

The Smart Car has 2 doors and a small hatchback to carry limited items in the back. The car has a sleek distinctive look and most either love it or hate it. I interviewed one Smart Car Convertible owner who stated that overall he is well satisfied with his car. When asked why her purchased the Smart For Two he replied that it was cheap on gas and he wanted to be an advocate for change.

Smart Cars are no doubt available in your neighborhood. Check out the features available at the site listed below. There is a Smart Car Center located in Orlando, Florida where many take their cars for routine maintenance.
