2012 Pilot Honda Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 2012 Honda Pilot Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2012 Honda Pilot, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Pilot feels bouncy, sways 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 Pilot in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Pilot suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Honda Pilot’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 Pilot Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 Honda Pilot suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. 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 Pilot’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Honda Pilot shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Honda Pilot suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 Pilot Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Honda's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Honda Pilot? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Honda intended.
  • Does my Honda Pilot power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Honda's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
