What to Know About 2013 Smart Fortwo Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Smart Fortwo, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Fortwo could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Fortwo maintenance. Just follow your 2013 Smart Fortwo maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Smart, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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 2013 Smart Fortwo problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Smart Fortwo

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2013 Smart Fortwo for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2013 Smart Fortwo. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Fortwo may need a replacement battery sooner. 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Fortwo stranded. Your Smart Fortwo could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2013 Smart Fortwo engine. To learn how often Smart recommends you have the oil changed in your 2013 Fortwo, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 2013 Smart Fortwo.

Maintaining your Smart Fortwo steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Smart Fortwo steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Smart Fortwo's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Smart Fortwo maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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. Need a new Smart Fortwo radiator? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2013 Smart Fortwo maintenance and repairs.

Questions About 2013 Smart Fortwo Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2013 Smart Fortwo. Get answers to common Smart Fortwo maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Smart Fortwo? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Smart Fortwo? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Smart Fortwo engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Smart? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Smart Fortwo, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
