2012 Smart Fortwo Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Smart? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Smart Fortwo? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your Fortwo towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Fortwo transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Smart Fortwo transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Smart's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
