It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2011 Smart Fortwo!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Smart, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Fortwo running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2011 Smart Fortwo problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Smart Fortwo

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2011 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. 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.

Could your 2011 Smart Fortwo be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Smart Fortwo battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Fortwo stranded. Your Smart Fortwo won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2011 Smart Fortwo engine. See Smart's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2011 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2011 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. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Smart Fortwo suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Smart Fortwo's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Smart Fortwo maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Smart Fortwo cooling, heating, and climate control system.
