Fun Smart Car Facts
The original and unique design of the first model backed by Volkswagen is one of the most persistent and lasting Smart Car variants and is now dubbed as the “Fortwo.”
SMART Cars are relatively new to the automotive scene. Developed in the early 2000s, SMART Cars weren’t introduced to the United States until 2008.
The Smart Fortwo has interchangeable plastic body panels, so the color of the car can be changed without repainting it.
The name “smart” comes from the partnership between Swatch and Mercedes (s+m) and the fact that they wanted to design an “artful” little car… so…s + m + art = smart! You can read more fun facts about smart cars here.
Common Problems with Smart Car
There are a myriad of symptoms that accompany transmission problems in Smart Cars. We hear things like:
- “I was driving along and all of a sudden, the car seems to think it’s in N.”
- Sometimes it does not go into gear, or shifts into reverse.”
No matter what symptoms you’re experiencing that may be caused by a faulty transmission, the best thing to do is bring it to a professional auto repair shop and have it diagnosed. Transmission problems or failures can be dangerous, and not worth the risk.

Axle Seal Leaks
A rear-axle oil leak is easy to miss. Often, the axle works normally until it suddenly seizes up. This happens because the axle has run dry of oil. This is not only expensive, it is possibly dangerous Axle seal replacement is not a part of regular maintenance. So how do you know if an axle seal is leaking? Oil drops on your driveway are one of the early signs. As more fluid is leaked out, the transmission fluid level drops and the transmission will start slipping. If not caught in time, the transmission may even get permanently damaged. If you have your oil changed regularly, your mechanic can spot an axle seal leak and let you know before any major damage is done.
