Is It Time For 2001 Acura MDX Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2001 Acura MDX, 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 MDX jolts, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2001 Acura MDX, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your MDX suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your MDX steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Acura MDX Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2001 Acura MDX’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2001 Acura MDX’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Acura MDX shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your MDX’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
