Other sources of smart fortwo reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of smart fortwos with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of smart fortwos that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track smart fortwo lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the smart fortwo has been recently.
