Smart is famous for its Fortwo city car which was developed as an affordable car that would fit into the smallest of parking spots and offer good fuel economy. A rear mounted engine and high strength steel passenger cage are among the many safety features that offer top notch protection and compensate for perceived vulnerability of this tiny two seater car.
At RCI Jeep & 4x4, we know Smart vehicles just as well as the Smart dealerships. Our technicians stay up-to-date on the latest Smart technology and features to ensure we can take care of your vehicle whether you need an oil change or engine replacement. If you live in the Melbourne area, we hope you’ll count on us to keep your Smart performing at its best.
If any warning lights display on your Smart vehicle, you should head to an auto repair shop as soon as possible (at a minimum within the next 600 miles). Generally, your motor oil and filter must be changed at least once a year, and this may be the culprit. However, if you’re driving in optimal conditions, your vehicle might not indicate the need for vehicle service for more than a year. At RCI Jeep & 4x4, our trained technicians can accurately determine when your Smart needs maintenance, exactly when and not before or after it’s necessary.
The brake pads on your Smart vehicle are equipped with wear indicators that will produce a squealing noise when the brakes are almost worn out. The noise will start when there is about 2 mm of brake pad friction remaining, which is when brake pads need to be replaced. If you are hearing this noise, your brake pads should be replaced as soon as possible. (The noise may be present even when you’re not applying the brake pedal.) At RCI Jeep & 4x4, we can help with all your Smart service needs.
