When should you have your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Bolt EV bounces, pulls 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 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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 absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Bolt EV 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 Bolt EV 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 Bolt EV Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV suspension system. 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 Chevrolet up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Chevrolet Bolt EV shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2017 Bolt EV Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Bolt EV's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Chevrolet Bolt EV? 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 the tires connect with the road how Chevrolet intended.
  • When does Chevrolet Bolt EV 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
