Issues with this year?

Just bought my first smart: 2009 Passion. Love the car and have wanted on for 5 years now. I bought it for many reasons, the main being fuel economy. I drive roughly 1000 miles a week to and from the office when I'm on location. I would like to know if there is anything I need to pay extra attention to for preventative maintenance. I plan to make some modifications to vehicle over the years but not looking forward to any known issues.See More

"Is there any rubbing of the tires up front? I've been thinking of going with 16" all around and a set of black Team Dynamics rims from Smart Madness"
