When To Get 2013 Ford Escape Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2013 Ford Escape, 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 Escape bounces, sways 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 Ford Escape in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Escape 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.

Ford Escape Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2013 Ford Escape suspension system. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2013 Ford Escape shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Ford Escape shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2013 Ford Escape’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2013 Escape Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Ford'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 should my Ford Escape 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 Ford intended.
  • Does my Ford Escape power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Escape’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Ford's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
