Suspension Service & Repair for 2011 Honda Fit

Is It Time For 2011 Honda Fit Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2011 Honda Fit, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Fit jolts, leans 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 2011 Honda Fit in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Fit suspension system needs repair, 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 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

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2011 Honda Fit suspension system. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2011 Honda Fit shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Honda Fit shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2011 Honda Fit’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2011 Fit Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Fit's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Why should my Honda Fit 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Honda Fit power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Fit’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Honda's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
