My girlfriend actually owns one and I think it's actually quite nice. The drivers side has lots fo leg room but the passenger side is a bit cramped(kinda like sitting in the backseat of a car). Mercedez sells them but I'm not too sure if they've made it to the US yet. I have heard of people coming up to Canada to buy one and bring it back to the US. My only beef with it is that because it runs on diesel, you gotta make sure you have gas stations around you that sell diesel, otherwise you'd kinda screwed.

They're a tiny diesel ppowered car that mercedes put out. It's been on the market in Europe for a while now. Cute little things, but I'm not too sure how they handle. Must be pretty good on gas mileage though. Here's a pic of one.

My car once took off by itself, went about a block, and then crashed into a tree. I guess I own a dumb car.

I'd buy one if they sold them in the US

Actually, I want a Tata Nano, but I don't think they're coming to the US.
