What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2009 Smart Fortwo?

Here’s Why 2009 Smart Fortwo Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Smart Fortwo and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Fortwo could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Fortwo maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2009 Smart Fortwo!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Smart, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Fortwo running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2009 Smart Fortwo problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Smart Fortwo Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2009 Smart Fortwo and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Fortwo’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2009 Smart Fortwo? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Smart Fortwo battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Fortwo stranded. Your Smart Fortwo won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2009 Smart Fortwo running newer, longer. See Smart's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2009 Fortwo in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2009 Smart Fortwo? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Smart Fortwo steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Smart Fortwo steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Smart Fortwo's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Smart Fortwo services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Smart Fortwo’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Smart Fortwo? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2009 Smart Fortwo maintenance.
