2017 Smart Fortwo Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Smart's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Smart? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Fortwo towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Fortwo's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Smart Fortwo transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Smart's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
