Hi Jim, and welcome to MySwissAlps!

We shared a lot of must knows here: www.myswissalps.com/ca r. Did you go through that already?

Feel free to let us know if anything is missing there and we'll be glad to help you out.

I wouldn't drive in Zurich itself. It's busy with a lot of pedestrian zones and one way streets like in many Swiss towns. Interlaken is rather small. You don't need a car in town but you can use it to explore the region (valleys and lake areas). Note that many areas, particularly the mountains and the Jungfrau region are car free.

Zurich can be a bear with a car. In any city, park in the outer areas and take mass transport into the centers. On the expressways, go the speed limit, and unless passing stay in the right lane. Make sure that you have a Vignette allowing you to use the Autobahns. Rental agencies can give you any local tips and maps.
