Forty-eight percent of the drivers surveyed said the fortwo was the car they wouldn't want to be caught in.

"All these cars are bold statements. You either love them or hate them," CarInsurance.com managing editor Des Toups said in a statement. "But even considering that, a lot of people don't like the Smart fortwo, and those who don't like it seem to despise it."
When asked to pinpoint the worst attributes of the Smart fortwo drivers said it was "too small," "too dorky," "too girly," and it "tries too hard."
