2013 Honda Civic Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2013 Honda Civic Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2013 Honda Civic, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Civic feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2013 Honda Civic, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Civic suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Honda Civic’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.

Honda Civic Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2013 Honda Civic suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Honda up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Civic’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Honda Civic shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Civic’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

2013 Civic Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Honda's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Honda Civic? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Honda Civic power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
