My wife wants a smart to commute to work in. She drives 35 miles on the freeway to and from work daily (by herself). She currently is cummuting in a Turbo Beetle and has put 80K miles on the car in just over 4 years (second set of tires & still on original brakes). She drives against traffic and has a very easy commute compaired to others driving into our metro area. Do you think a little smart is up to the task? It is pretty normal for modern freeway driven small cars to stay reliable out past 150K miles. Has anyone heard if our Canadian neighbors have had good experiences with freeway commuting with the smart?
