Not sure when your 2018 Fortwo is due for its next transmission service?

What Does Your Smart Fortwo Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Smart Fortwo transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Smart Fortwo transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Fortwo isn’t working at all.

2018 Smart Fortwo Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Smart? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Smart tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Fortwo is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Fortwo transmission fluid need to be checked? 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
