2001 Insight Honda Steering & Suspension Services

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2001 Honda Insight

Not sure when or if your Honda Insight’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2001 Honda Insight Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2001 Honda Insight, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Insight bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2001 Honda Insight 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, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Honda Insight suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Honda Insight

Your 2001 Honda Insight’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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 Insight’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Honda Insight shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2001 Honda Insight’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2001 Insight Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Insight'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 Insight 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Honda intended.
  • When should I have my Honda Insight power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
