2004 Honda Insight Maintenance Schedule

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

Is It Time For 2004 Honda Insight Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2004 Honda Insight, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Insight jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2004 Honda Insight in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, 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 problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 Insight steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Honda Insight Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2004 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. 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, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Honda Insight shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2004 Honda Insight suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2004 Insight Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Honda's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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 Insight get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Insight is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Honda's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
