I have a used 09 that I bought was 71,000 miles on it, we had a lot of peeling on the rear tailgate, we traced it back to small cuts in the clearcoat near the smart logo, no one told me not to run my smart through an automated car wash, because the back of the car is perfectly flat but the spryers come at an angle they ripped the clearcoat off the top half of the tailgate, cost to strip and recoat the tailgate was too high, we simply bought a new panel, and I had a custom shop put clear bra on the top quarter of the tailgate, to keep new scratches from causing the same problem, and I only hand wash my smart now, haven't had any problems cents, car has 114,000 miles on it now.
