Does Your 2014 Ford C-Max Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2014 Ford C-Max, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your C-Max bounces, leans 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 2014 Ford C-Max in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Ford C-Max’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Ford C-Max Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2014 Ford C-Max’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 C-Max’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Ford C-Max shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2014 Ford C-Max’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
