Why was the Smart Car unsuccessful in the US market?

    Well, from what I’m reading it’s probably performance that makes it unsuccessful. The compact size and gas mileage may be good, but it requires Premium Gas (You know, the ridiculously expensive one), it accelerates terribly slowly, and the transmission isn’t smooth, and it apperantly vibrates a bit. It’s also bit of a safety risk and got low ratings from insurance companies, unsurprisingly enough.

    While yes, the Smart Car is Earth Friendly, it’s not Pocket Friendly or really all that safe to be in if you get into a wreck.
