Interesting observation. When I used to tow the Geo Metro, I used to bind the steering wheel with bungie cord - a long cord from one side of the wheel, around the clutch pedal, and back to the other side of the wheel. This helped the steering wheel return to "home" position after a turn. Always kept and eye in side mirror/backup camera to make sure the toad was tracking correctly after a turn. I only had one incident after making a sharp turn when the wheels didn't return to "home." I suspect that's part of the problem with the Smart. It's such a light vehicle and doesn't have enough weight for the wheels to return to center naturally.
