Is It Time For 2015 Smart Fortwo Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2015 Smart Fortwo, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Fortwo jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2015 Smart Fortwo in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 parts of your Smart Fortwo suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Smart Fortwo Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2015 Smart Fortwo’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2015 Smart Fortwo’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Smart Fortwo shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2015 Smart Fortwo’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2015 Fortwo Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Smart's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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 right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Smart intended.
  • 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’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Smart's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
