Yep. It does as well as anyone could expect. What's really impressive to me is that the windshield doesn't even break in the frontal test.

I look at cars like the Smart as a calculated risk, much like a motorcycle. You've got to drive defensively.

That's exactly what I tell people when they look at the car and start bitching that it's too small and it's unsafe, I always respond: "Well it's safer than the motorcycle I ride on weekends". Most of the time it shuts them up while they think about the truth of the statement.

Garage List
2008 135i  [3.00]
I saw some that had some cool customizations in Italy. One was jet black with custome wheels - beautiful. Unfortunately, the reviews of them in the US have been pretty horrible. The price is one issue and the gas mileage isn't remotely what you would expect it to be. The real problem, however, is a terrible, herky-jerky transmission. Mercedes apparently had good reason to be so reluctant about importing them.
