2002 Insight Honda Steering & Suspension Services

2002 Honda Insight Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2002 Honda Insight suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2002 Honda Insight Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2002 Honda Insight, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Insight feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2002 Honda Insight, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Insight 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 your Honda Insight’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Honda Insight Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2002 Honda Insight’s suspension. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Honda up off the ground. 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. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Honda Insight shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2002 Honda Insight’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2002 Insight Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Insight's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 Insight? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 does Honda Insight power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Insight is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
