The ADAC breakdown statistics determine which Smart models are the most reliable and which have broken down most – a good help when buying a used Smart ForTwo.
In the statistics for 2021, all the breakdowns for which the German Yellow Angels had to move out in 2020 were recorded and evaluated. There is enough data available that gives an objective picture of the reliability of the Smart ForTwo.
