2012 Insight Honda Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 2012 Honda Insight Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2012 Honda Insight, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Insight jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2012 Honda Insight in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 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 2012 Honda Insight’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 2012 Honda Insight’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Honda Insight shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Honda Insight suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2012 Honda Insight Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Honda's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Honda Insight power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Insight’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Honda's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
