This car is probaly my favourite set, in my massive city. This is because it is small and can fit in lots of small and tight places, such as the alleyways in my city. The minifigure is also cool as he looks quite young and a professional in his field, which I'm guessing is IT, he also comes with a quite little suitcase that fits in the back of the car.
- It's small
- The price
- The minifigure
- The car
- the roof and the minifigures head
I will now explain the con, I don't know if it is the way I put him in the car but sometimes I can't put the roof back onto the car because he sticks up to much.
Another thing aboit this set, is that two cars are available in the current cargo train from 2010, 7939. One is white and ther other is blue. The blue matches this car exactly and the white one is slightly different becuase a piece is moved forward, but easy to make it match.
Fianlly if you can find this set, buy it, but only if it is cheap. Also I'm sorry this review is not up to the same standard as my others, but I don't have the model on my person as I am writing this.

This set has been on my radar for a while. Got the chance to snag one up about a month or two ago at a ToysRus.
Really fun kit. Super simple built that leaves you with a super neat little smart car look alike!
Wish the briefcase had a more secure fit out of the box, though nothing a few leftover pieces from other sets can't fix.

Ah yes, the Small Car. It's a car, and it's small, and close to 80 people have decided to chime in with an opinion stating as such. If there is a non-licensed set with more reviews than this one, I don't know what it is.
I'm sure that part of the reason why this set has so many reviews is that there is really no reason to not own this set as long as you have the most rudimentary of City collections at your disposal. It's a full vehicle and a cool Minifig for $5, and it's really hard to get any better than that (except perhaps for BBQ Stand (8398), another exceptionally cool City impulse set). All the details for a car are packed tightly into a surprisingly intricate design that is sure to offend Americans who subscribe to the philosophy that a car is only as good as its approximation to an armoured vehicle.
One small annoyance with this set, however, is the transparent red piece that sits just beneath the canopy. If placed so as advised by the directions, the Minifig has to lean really far forward in order to be able to sit squarely inside the vehicle, which may conjure up certain images of Korean grandmothers that probably ought not to be behind the wheel of a thousand pound machine of death. Also, a second white L-shaped piece allows the Minifig's briefcase to fit much more snugly in the car. This design was used at least once - in the money transport truck in Bank & Money Transfer (3661), so why it was not recycled in such a natural location is a bit baffling.
It has probably cost you more than $5 already to sit here reading this review, so enough with the philosophical agonising: get this set. It's fun, it's cheap, it's small, and it's a car. There, maybe now this will be the last review, though probably not.

- Great detail for such a small set
- Nice little mini-fig
- Great design even includes little area for suitcase
- Overall awesome set
- The little suitcase piece's handle becomes worn and keeps coming off
- I like advance building so this was a bit simple for me

Even though the Small Car #3177 is small, it still fits your City. If you want to add more cars to your city, then this set is great. Its even cool that there are different colored versions of this set in the Cargo Train #7939.
1. It comes with a minifigure with the white sweater piece, and actually this was 1st set to introduce this torso, and it comes with a brown briefcase.
2. This car is super small, I compared it to the Sports Car #8402 and the Yellow Bus in the City Corner #7641. Which is cool, because you can use to make an action car chase scene where it can drive inside anything. The car is black and white and comes with a little trunk to put the briefcase in.
This is a great set, even though its small.
