When To Get 2017 Buick Encore Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2017 Buick Encore, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Encore bounces, pulls 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 2017 Buick Encore in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Encore suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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 2017 Buick Encore’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 2017 Buick Encore shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your 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. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2017 Encore Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Buick's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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 Buick Encore get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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 should I have my Buick Encore power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Encore’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Buick's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
