One of the best ways to find a used Smart car is to search for used models on a car sales website such as Autotrader.com. Smart dealers, used car lots and private parties all list used Smart cars through sales websites, as well as through auction websites such as eBay.com.
Smart cars are primarily intended for use in urban areas, where their small size is an advantage on tight city streets and during parking. Therefore, Smart shoppers are more likely to find a used Smart car for sale by a used dealer or private party located in or near a city. Smart dealerships are also more likely to have used examples on hand than other dealerships.
Smart also resells qualifying vehicles through a certified pre-owned vehicle program. Certified pre-owned Smart cars are covered by either a one-year/100,000-mile or two-year/100,000 mile warranty depending on the model year of the vehicle, offering an option for buyers to benefit from warranty protection as well as the lower price of a used vehicle. Smart also offers 24-hour roadside assistance for owners of certified pre-owned vehicles during the warranty period, and recent buyers can return a certified pre-owned Smart car within a seven-day/500 mile return period to exchange it for another vehicle if they are not pleased with the vehicle they purchased.
