Getting your 2017 Fortwo’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem.

Schedule one on its own or request a brake check during a regular service, like an oil change. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Brake problems include unusual noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Smart Fortwo better than anyone else. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check.

How often do 2017 Smart Fortwo brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Fortwo. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Smart Fortwo brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Fortwo, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Smart’s standards.
Your Smart Fortwo may be powered by a strong engine. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t stop it, it’s as good as scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components.
