2017 Ford Escape Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2017 Ford Escape Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2017 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. Perhaps your Escape feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2017 Ford Escape, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Escape 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 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2017 Ford Escape’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. 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 getting your 2017 Ford Escape’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Ford Escape shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2017 Ford Escape suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2017 Escape Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Ford's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Ford Escape? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way 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 your suspension perform optimally.
