2016 Honda Fit Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2016 Honda Fit Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2016 Honda Fit, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Fit feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2016 Honda Fit 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Fit steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Honda Fit Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2016 Honda Fit’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Fit’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Honda Fit shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2016 Honda Fit’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.

2016 Fit Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Honda's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Honda Fit? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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? 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 can fill it per Honda's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
