Suspension Service & Repair for 2010 Honda Insight

Is It Time For 2010 Honda Insight Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2010 Honda Insight, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Insight bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2010 Honda Insight in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Insight suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Honda Insight’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Honda Insight Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2010 Honda Insight suspension system. 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 can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Honda Insight shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2010 Honda Insight suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2010 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. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Honda Insight? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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 your suspension perform optimally.
