When To Get 2010 Smart Fortwo Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2010 Smart Fortwo, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Fortwo jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2010 Smart Fortwo in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Smart Fortwo suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Smart Fortwo Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2010 Smart Fortwo’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Smart up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2010 Smart Fortwo shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Smart Fortwo shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2010 Smart Fortwo’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2010 Fortwo Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Fortwo's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Smart Fortwo? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Smart intended.
  • Does my Smart Fortwo power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Smart service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
  • Why is my Smart Fortwo bouncing excessively? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your Fortwo to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my Fortwo's nose dive down when I hit the brakes? As you brake, the forward momentum of your Fortwo combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • What do worn Smart Fortwo shocks feel like? Worn Fortwo shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your Fortwo might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your Fortwo shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
