Suspension Service & Repair for 2013 Honda CR-V

Is It Time For 2013 Honda CR-V Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2013 Honda CR-V, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your CR-V feels bouncy, pulls 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 CR-V, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your CR-V suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your CR-V 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.

Honda CR-V Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2013 Honda CR-V’s suspension. 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 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 CR-V’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Honda CR-V shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2013 Honda CR-V 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.

2013 CR-V Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Honda's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 CR-V get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 connect with the road how Honda intended.
  • When does Honda CR-V power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your CR-V’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
