What to Know About 2017 Smart Fortwo Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Smart Fortwo and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Fortwo could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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 2017 Smart Fortwo!

Smart knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Fortwo perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2017 Smart Fortwo problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Smart Fortwo

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2017 Smart Fortwo for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with 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 2017 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Fortwo may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Smart Fortwo battery. 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.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2017 Smart Fortwo's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2017 Fortwo. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil.

You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Smart Fortwo steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. 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 skip recommended Smart Fortwo services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too.

Questions About 2017 Smart Fortwo Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2017 Smart Fortwo. Get answers to common Smart Fortwo maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Smart Fortwo? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Smart Fortwo to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Smart Fortwo engines.
  •  Why are my Smart dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Smart Fortwo, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
