2012 Smart Fortwo Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2012 Smart Fortwo

Your Fortwo drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Smart, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2012 Smart Fortwo to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Smart's recommendations.

What Are Smart Fortwo Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2012 Smart Fortwo drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Smart could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Smart Fortwo doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2012 Smart Fortwo? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
