What to Know About 2018 Smart Fortwo Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Smart Fortwo and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Fortwo has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Fortwo maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2018 Smart Fortwo maintenance schedule!

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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. 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 2018 Smart Fortwo problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Smart Fortwo Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2018 Smart Fortwo to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Fortwo’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2018 Smart Fortwo. 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! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Smart Fortwo won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2018 Smart Fortwo running newer, longer. See Smart's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2018 Fortwo in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2018 Smart Fortwo.

Maintaining your Smart Fortwo steering and suspension system 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 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. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Smart Fortwo’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Smart Fortwo? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2018 Smart Fortwo maintenance and repairs.

Questions About 2018 Smart Fortwo Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 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? You know your Smart Fortwo better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Smart Fortwo need 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? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Smart Fortwo in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
