Is the steering and suspension system in your Honda Passport due for service yet?

Is It Time For 1997 Honda Passport Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1997 Honda Passport, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Passport feels bouncy, 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 1997 Honda Passport in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Honda Passport suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Honda Passport

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1997 Honda Passport’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 Passport’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Honda Passport shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1997 Honda Passport’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1997 Passport Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Passport's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Honda Passport? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Honda intended.
  • When does Honda Passport 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 Passport’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
