2001 Acura CL Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2001 Acura CL suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2001 Acura CL Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2001 Acura CL, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your CL bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2001 Acura CL in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your CL suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your CL steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Acura CL Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2001 Acura CL’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2001 Acura CL shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Acura CL shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2001 Acura CL suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2001 CL Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Acura's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Acura CL? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Acura CL power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Acura's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
