When To Get 2016 Smart Fortwo Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2016 Smart Fortwo, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Fortwo bounces, sways 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 2016 Smart Fortwo in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Smart Fortwo’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Smart Fortwo Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2016 Smart Fortwo suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Fortwo’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Smart Fortwo shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Fortwo’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2016 Fortwo Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Smart's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Smart intended.
  • Does my Smart Fortwo power steering fluid need to be checked? 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 follow Smart service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
