I lived in Central NJ for 44 years NJ before my job moved to Delaware. Was nice growing up , too crowded now, taxes are out of control, roads are a mess. My parents still live there so I am back often but I don't miss it. The general attitude of the people was pretty cool despite the mess.

I hope you have the wheel and tire warranty

Agreed. I live in Rumson, which is literally the next town over from Highlands and the shore. Make sure to visit the lighthouse.

We, Ray Catena smart center Edison, had a Road Rally on November 16th and we had a nice drive through the scenic routes of Highlands and down to the beach.

It's a shame most out-of-staters judge our state while driving through NJ on the NJ Turnpike / I-95 and all they see are smoke barracks, gas containers, and traffic...

If you have another road rally, I will definitely go. It is a shame that people think of the chemical factories and the 'mafia dumping ground' when they think of New Jersey. There is a lot to see and do in this state. There is a reason it is called the 'Garden State'; forests, farms and natural wonders here. I was not born in NJ but I am glad I am living in NJ.

Princeton is such a beautiful place that it looks like it belongs elsewhere.

Cranbury NJ is a historical little town. Hightstown NJ is too and with some nice looking houses. There is a lot of history in NJ. There is much to do in NJ.

What i am wanting to know and if anyone is willing to share is what is the cost to insure a Smart in NJ. I was out that way recently and the friend i was visiting tells me that a Smart according to insurance companies is classed as a "sports car" due to the mere fact it has two doors, and here i am thinking it would be crazy to pay higher insurance just for owning a Smart. I have thought of living there in the future. Any thoughts?

NJ has one of the highest insurance rates in the country. That being said, a number of factors come into play. 1) age/expierence
2) record
3) city you live in
4) how far you drive to work
I have NJ Manufactures Ins. and pay less than 700 per year for full coverage. Once again your situation will differ from me and your rates will reflect that.

I have Allstate covering two cars; a 2007 Ford Focus and a 2008 Smart Fortwo Pure. My insurance - IIRC - went down when I bought them. I believe having a clean driving record helps too.

With the way some people drive in New Jersey, I can understand why insurance rates can be so high.
