I was upset to see that the smart roadster...
...would be discontinued after 2005. But apparently after the announcement sales went up in the UK 30%, and they will now continue producing the roadster untill 2006.
Hopefully the termination will continue to be delayed untill they start selling the cars here in the US. Especially with these gas prices....if i did the math right the roadster gets on average about 57mpg. Only problem...its top speed is about 109MPH...then again I rarely go above that.
Other perks...its smaller the the mini cooper...parking in the city will never be an issue again (my current car is a VW Passat)
