Does Your 2016 Buick Encore Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2016 Buick Encore, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Encore jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2016 Buick Encore in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub 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 what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Encore steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Buick Encore Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2016 Buick Encore’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Encore’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Buick Encore shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Encore’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2016 Encore Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Buick's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Buick Encore get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Buick Encore power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Encore’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Buick's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
