My wife won't drive the Smarts either. Then again, she won't drive anything. Next month she will start driving again so this is going to be interesting, she's once again continuing her education (how many degrees does one need?). The headrest will block her view, so we'll see what happens there. Don't have to worry about Starbucks in the car...she knows better. (plus she focuses 120% on driving because she has to)

Congrats on not having to worry about a spouse taking your car. That problem is a common one here at SCOA.

That is so made of awesomeness! I had to buy my own (after waiting 18 months for it).

I did make the mistake of letting my other half drive it for two days while his ride was in the shop. Error. Fail. He got so many good comments on it that now he's talking about getting one for himself. (Note to self: Check rated mileage on his car to see if he can get some $$ from the fed to get one of his own)..
