2016 HR-V Honda Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2016 Honda HR-V Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2016 Honda HR-V, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your HR-V feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2016 Honda HR-V, bring it 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your HR-V 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 HR-V 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 HR-V Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2016 Honda HR-V’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 2016 Honda HR-V shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Honda HR-V shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2016 Honda HR-V’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2016 HR-V Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 HR-V get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Honda intended.
  • Does my Honda HR-V power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your HR-V’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
