Change coolant on Smart ForTwo

How often do you change the coolant in your Smart ForTwo?
One friend told me that you don't need to do it at all, but he drives Audi.
Any opinions?

Appears that even the owners manual must disagree... W&B says, owners manual is your friend and 60K is the recommended coolant change... Rw says 40K and highlights the owners manual... So what's the correct answer ???

Unless the 2008 owner's manual is different, I'm going to vote 40k.

FWIW - Changing the coolant and spark plugs appeared to have solved my running temp issue.

The owners portal says 40K, but I swear my original owners manual says 60K. I'll have to check it tomorrow and see what it says.

Not like I haven't been wrong before....:wink:
