When To Get 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Captiva Sport feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Chevrolet Captiva Sport suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet Captiva Sport Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Chevrolet Captiva Sport shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2012 Captiva Sport Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Captiva Sport's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for 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 Chevrolet Captiva Sport get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Chevrolet intended.
  • When should I have my Chevrolet Captiva Sport power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Captiva Sport bouncing excessively? Excessive bouncing in your Chevrolet Captiva Sport might be due to damaged struts or shocks that are unable to absorb road bumps effectively, causing your vehicle to feel more like a pogo stick than a smooth ride.
  • What can cause the front end of my Captiva Sport to dip forward when I apply the brakes? As you brake, the forward momentum of your Captiva Sport combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • How do I know if I have worn Chevrolet Captiva Sport shocks? Worn Captiva Sport shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your Captiva Sport might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your Captiva Sport shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
