During the first few years you had your 2021 Acura TLX, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your TLX feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2021 Acura TLX, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2021 Acura TLX suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. 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, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Acura TLX shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your TLX’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.
Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of steering or suspension problems with your 2021 Acura TLX. From shocks to ball joints, your Acura will be in good hands. Schedule an appointment today.
