2012 Accord Honda Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 2012 Honda Accord Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2012 Honda Accord, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Accord bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2012 Honda Accord, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Accord suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Honda Accord’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Honda Accord Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2012 Honda Accord’s suspension. 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 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’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Honda Accord shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Honda Accord suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2012 Accord Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Honda's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Honda Accord 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Honda intended.
  • When should I have my Honda Accord 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’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
