We traded our Jeep grand Cherokee for a smart car toad a few years back. For the most part it is a great toad. We have been all over the back roads of bryce and sedona as well as many of the roads around Blythe and imperial dam area. We deflate the tires a bit when off road and we keep it real slow. Great little toad. We prefer to tow ours on a smart car trailer but most of the folks we meet with smart cars tend to tow them 4 down. Our trailer stores mostly under the motorhome so it is seldom a problem and it is nice to be able to back up. Different strokes.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but rather by the moments that take our breath away.
I've put roughly 18,000 miles on our Pace Arrow 36D, Workhorse 22 chassis, 8.1L, Allison.
I don't think it would get 9mpg going down hill, and no, I wouldn't trust the computer. How fast were you cruising? I run 65mph, and average 7.5, more like 7.0 towing a 3000lb HHR.
Hear, Hear!!Glad I'm not the only one who lives in the real world. 7 is what I get with my diesel and Allison 6sp. MPG via 'puter,hogwash. Big block Chevy?? 9?? I don't think so. Happy PO needs a calculator and some basic arithmetic skills.
