2009 Acura MDX Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2009 Acura MDX Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2009 Acura MDX, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your MDX jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2009 Acura MDX in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2009 Acura MDX suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 getting your 2009 Acura MDX’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs 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.

2009 MDX Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 help you notice when you need 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Acura MDX? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Acura intended.
  • Does my Acura MDX power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your MDX’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Acura's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
