2013 Smart Fortwo Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Smart's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Smart tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Fortwo’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Fortwo's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2013 Fortwo’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Smart, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
