Yes I want one based on that movie... but then I saw the Smart Car Roadster in a Paris showroom... I REALLY want one of those!

I love my '06 red/white S. It's great on the road!

Consumer Reports reviewed the smart car and they basically said stay away from it.

I agree, my neighbour has a smart car roadster - looked great but was very unreliable. She's swapped it for a mini covertible and hasn't looked back

Hi I have had a Mini Cooper since 2003 and love it. It has 72,000 mi. on it and runs just as well. Just bought a 2007 Audi A3, see how that holds up.

The mini is cute, but would be impractical for me. Mixed reviews on quality as well.
