Is It Time For 2021 Buick Encore GX Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2021 Buick Encore GX, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Encore GX bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2021 Buick Encore GX in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Buick Encore GX’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Buick Encore GX Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2021 Buick Encore GX’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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Buick up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2021 Buick Encore GX’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Buick Encore GX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2021 Buick Encore GX suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2021 Encore GX Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Buick's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Buick Encore GX? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Buick intended.
  • Does my Buick Encore GX 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 Encore GX’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Buick service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
