Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2011 Chevrolet Aveo

Is the steering and suspension system in your Chevrolet Aveo due for service yet?

When To Get 2011 Chevrolet Aveo Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2011 Chevrolet Aveo, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Aveo jolts, leans 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 2011 Chevrolet Aveo in for suspension and steering service. 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, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Aveo suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Aveo steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet Aveo Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2011 Chevrolet Aveo’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Chevrolet up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Aveo’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet Aveo shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Aveo’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2011 Aveo Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Aveo's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Chevrolet Aveo 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 right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Chevrolet intended.
  • When does Chevrolet Aveo 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 Aveo is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Chevrolet service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
