When To Get 2011 Honda Accord Crosstour Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2011 Honda Accord Crosstour, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Accord Crosstour feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2011 Honda Accord Crosstour in for steering and suspension services. 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 absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 Accord Crosstour 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.

Honda Accord Crosstour Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2011 Honda Accord Crosstour’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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Accord Crosstour’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 rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Honda Accord Crosstour shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2011 Honda Accord Crosstour suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2011 Honda Accord Crosstour Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Accord Crosstour's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Honda Accord Crosstour? 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 Honda intended.
  • When should I have my Honda Accord Crosstour power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Accord Crosstour is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Honda's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
  • Why is my Honda Accord Crosstour bouncing excessively? If it feels like you’re on a trampoline every time your Accord Crosstour goes over a bump or dip, you may have a problem with your struts or shocks. Faulty shocks and struts can’t properly absorb road bumps, leading to a bouncy ride.
  • Why does my Accord Crosstour's nose dive down when I hit the brakes? The forward momentum and weight transfer to the front wheels during braking can cause your Accord Crosstour's front end to dip forward. A damaged or faulty suspension system may fail to distribute the weight and force effectively, causing the front end to dip even more.
  • How can I tell if the shocks on my Honda Accord Crosstour are bad? Worn Accord Crosstour shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your Accord Crosstour might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your Accord Crosstour shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
