When you first drove your 2012 Acura MDX, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your MDX bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2012 Acura MDX in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, damper 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 car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Acura MDX suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.
Your 2012 Acura MDX’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Acura up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your MDX’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Acura MDX shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 Acura MDX’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
