2018 Smart Fortwo Maintenance Schedule

Not sure when or if your Smart Fortwo’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2018 Smart Fortwo Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2018 Smart Fortwo, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Fortwo bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2018 Smart Fortwo in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Fortwo suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Fortwo steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Smart Fortwo Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Smart Fortwo’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Smart up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2018 Smart Fortwo shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Smart Fortwo shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2018 Smart Fortwo suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2018 Smart Fortwo Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Smart's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Smart Fortwo get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Smart intended.
  • When should I have my Smart Fortwo power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Smart's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
