What to Know About 2016 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? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Fortwo maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2016 Smart Fortwo!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Smart, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2016 Smart Fortwo problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Smart Fortwo Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Smart Fortwo for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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 2016 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). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Smart Fortwo battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Fortwo) stuck in the middle of nowhere. 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 2016 Smart Fortwo engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2016 Fortwo. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2016 Smart Fortwo.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Smart Fortwo can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Smart Fortwo's steering and suspension system.

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 got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2016 Smart Fortwo maintenance.
