When To Get 2003 Honda Insight Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2003 Honda Insight, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Insight jolts, 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 2003 Honda Insight in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 your Insight 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 Insight Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2003 Honda Insight suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Honda up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2003 Honda Insight’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Honda Insight shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2003 Honda Insight suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2003 Honda Insight Steering & Suspension

  • 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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
