2008 Honda Fit Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2008 Honda Fit Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2008 Honda Fit, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Fit bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2008 Honda Fit in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Fit suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Honda Fit 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.

Honda Fit Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2008 Honda Fit’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2008 Honda Fit shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Honda Fit shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Honda Fit suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2008 Fit Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Fit's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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 Fit? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Honda intended.
  • When does Honda Fit power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Fit is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
