Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2010 Smart Fortwo!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Smart themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Fortwo's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2010 Smart Fortwo problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Smart Fortwo

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2010 Smart Fortwo and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Fortwo's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2010 Smart Fortwo? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Fortwo may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Smart Fortwo battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Fortwo) stuck in the middle of nowhere. 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 2010 Smart Fortwo running newer, longer. To learn how often Smart recommends you have the oil changed in your 2010 Fortwo, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2010 Smart Fortwo.

Routine upkeep for your Smart Fortwo suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Smart Fortwo's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Smart Fortwo maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car.
