For Those Who Still Doubt the Safety of a smart!

Recommended Posts

Our poor smart car went to smart Valhalla on 4/6. Three quarter right front hit by a Chevy pickup going app 60 MPH.

 

Pictures on my PhotoBucket page http://s173.photobucket.com/user/dmnb/library/2011%20smart%20Crash

 

My passenger has cracked ribs and a "slight" lung puncture, I have a cracked sternum and we both have multiple bruises and contusions.

 

ALL of our injuries caused by seat belts and air bags! No intrusion into the passenger compartment. Looking closely at the front structure, it collapsed right up to the support "horn" on the safety cell, no damage to the cell at that point. There was a slight kink in the right front "A" pillar. The drivers door opened and shut perfectly. The car is a write-off, but it did the job and protected us!

 

Bought a new, unsold 2013 smart Cityflame Edition this week. In dealer stock since 6/2013 with 51 miles on it.

Dennis, can I have permission to use your pictures? Without "royalty" :)

 

Sure Jack, no problem. The more people see the capabilities of the smart the better.

 

Did not look at the 2016 since they are 4" wider which could be an issue with my load space. Plus Nancy wanted a yellow and black one when we bought the gray market smart in 2006 but they weren't available then. So when I came across this one, at a dealer we have dealt with before, it was a perfect fit.
