Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2014 Smart Fortwo

When does Smart recommend steering and suspension service for 2014 Smart Fortwos?

Does Your 2014 Smart Fortwo Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2014 Smart Fortwo, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Fortwo bounces, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2014 Smart Fortwo, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Smart Fortwo’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Smart Fortwo Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2014 Smart Fortwo suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Fortwo’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Smart Fortwo shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Fortwo’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2014 Fortwo Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Fortwo's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Smart Fortwo? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Smart Fortwo power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Fortwo is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Smart's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
