2009 Honda Fit Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 2009 Honda Fit Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2009 Honda Fit, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Fit jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2009 Honda Fit in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 your Honda Fit’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 Fit Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2009 Honda Fit’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 Fit’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Honda Fit shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2009 Honda Fit’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2009 Fit Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Honda's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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. 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.
  • Does my Honda Fit power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Fit’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
