Is It Time For 2013 Chrysler 200 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2013 Chrysler 200, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 200 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2013 Chrysler 200 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 200 suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your 200 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Chrysler 200 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2013 Chrysler 200’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 200’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Chrysler 200 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 200’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2013 200 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Chrysler's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Chrysler 200? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Chrysler intended.
  • Does my Chrysler 200 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 200 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Chrysler's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
