Some guys just don't get it. Dave Schembri of Smart USA says "...the diesel engine doesn't provide the kind of performance, I think, that would meet the expectations of the U.S. consumer."
I guess the punters will never know with this kind of short-sighted thinking. Having driven my 2005 diesel smart the length and breadth of the USA, while folk everywhere offered me hard cash to buy it, I can only conclude that he doesn't have a clue what he is talking about. RLT.
