Your Guide to 2014 Smart Fortwo Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Smart Fortwo to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Fortwo has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Fortwo, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2014 Smart Fortwo maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Smart themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Fortwo's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2014 Smart Fortwo problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Smart Fortwo Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2014 Smart Fortwo to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Fortwo's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2014 Smart Fortwo be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Smart Fortwo battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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 help your 2014 Smart Fortwo's engine run smoother. See Smart's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2014 Fortwo in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2014 Smart Fortwo.

Routine upkeep for your Smart Fortwo suspension and steering 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, 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 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. Is your Smart Fortwo radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2014 Smart Fortwo maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.
