Questions About 2009 Smart Fortwo’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Smart's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Smart Fortwo? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Fortwo’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Fortwo's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2009 Fortwo’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Smart. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
