Suspension Service & Repair for 2020 Acura TLX

Does Your 2020 Acura TLX Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2020 Acura TLX, 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 TLX bounces, pulls 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 2020 Acura TLX in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your TLX suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Acura TLX 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 TLX Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2020 Acura TLX’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your TLX’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Acura TLX shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2020 Acura TLX’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2020 TLX 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 TLX get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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.
  • When should I have my Acura TLX power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your TLX is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Acura's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
