2021 HR-V Honda Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2021 Honda HR-V Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2021 Honda HR-V, 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 HR-V feels bouncy, leans 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 2021 Honda HR-V, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 Honda HR-V’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Honda HR-V

Your 2021 Honda HR-V’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 2021 Honda HR-V shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. 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 2021 Honda HR-V’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2021 HR-V Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my HR-V'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. 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Honda HR-V? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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 should I have my Honda HR-V power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your HR-V is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
