When To Get 2018 Buick Encore Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2018 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.

The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2018 Buick Encore 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, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Encore suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost.

Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2018 Buick Encore shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, 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.
