2013 ILX Acura Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 2013 Acura ILX Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2013 Acura ILX, 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 ILX jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2013 Acura ILX, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your ILX suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Acura ILX’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Acura ILX Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2013 Acura ILX suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2013 Acura ILX’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Acura ILX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2013 Acura ILX suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2013 ILX Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Acura's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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.
  • Why should my Acura ILX get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Acura intended.
  • Does my Acura ILX power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your ILX’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Acura's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
