Hi, I just got a 2013 Smart, it has about 74,000 on it. Runs and looks great! I was wondering if I should change transmission fluid. I have done oil and radiator flush. And replaced all filters cabin and air. But was wondering about tranny fluid.

Wouldn't hurt. The recommended fluid is Castrol BOT 328. It's pricey but there are other oils that you can use. Just make sure it meets GL4 specs and not GL5.

Valvoline Syn Power 75W-90... MB gear approved. Kind of a pain, but jam the bottle between the spring at a 45deg angle and viola. No more milk shake herky jerky!
