Suspension Service & Repair for 2020 Acura MDX

Does Your 2020 Acura MDX Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2020 Acura MDX, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your MDX jolts, drifts 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 2020 Acura MDX 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, coil 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 parts of your Acura MDX suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Acura MDX Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2020 Acura MDX’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your MDX’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Acura MDX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2020 Acura MDX suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
