Train or Drive from Geneva to Lake Como (or drive from Zurich to Como?)

Hey guys -

A few friends and I are traveling to Switzerland and Italy this August. The question we are pondering - whether or not to drive or take the train from Geneva, Switzerland to the Lake Como area? We would ideally like to drive - think it would be fun to see the country. That said, our departure date will be August 16th - heart of tourism season. Google maps says the driving distance is about 4.5 hours, but do you guys know if that will be the case w/ traffic? Any sage advice would be appreciated - cost is not a factor. Thanks!!

Train to Lugano and get the car there. Swiss trains are so good---you will see more from the train.
