2008 Smart Fortwo Drivetrain Service

2008 Smart Fortwo Drivetrain Service

Your Fortwo’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Smart, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your Fortwo and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2008 Smart Fortwo, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Smart's recommendations.

When to Get Smart Fortwo Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2008 Smart Fortwo drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Fortwo might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Smart Fortwo.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2008 Smart Fortwo? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
