2016 CR-V Honda Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 2016 Honda CR-V Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2016 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. Maybe your CR-V bounces, leans 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 2016 Honda CR-V, 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 absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 parts of your Honda CR-V suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Honda CR-V

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2016 Honda CR-V suspension system. 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 limit vibration and keep your Honda up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your CR-V’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Honda CR-V shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your CR-V’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2016 Honda CR-V Steering & Suspension

  • 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 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. 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Honda CR-V power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your CR-V’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Honda's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
