I want a SmartCar but I have two children and need the 4-seater that I think is only sold in Europe. Is there any way to buy a 4-door SmartCar here in the US? How does international shipping work. I seriously want to purchase.
Thank you for visiting AskPatty.com. They are planning on bringing the SmartCar to the US. It looks like the 2dr will be out for 2008 and the 4dr may come out the following year. Here is a link that may help your search...http://www.smartusa.com/
Also know that it will probably be very difficult to bring one in from another country because of our strict safety requirements in the U.S.
You may want to also consider the Escape Hybrid for an alternative.
