To The Editor:
I’ve been driving the European version of the smart car in and around Chicago for more than a year and I agree that it is a terrific second car.
One problem not mentioned in the article is the bad shape of streets.
For most of the year, it’s just a very rough ride. But now, with the worst potholes in recent history, it becomes a real challenge to dodge the holes that would swallow up the small wheels–and maybe the entire car.
