Suspension Service & Repair for 2018 Honda Pilot

Does Your 2018 Honda Pilot Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2018 Honda Pilot, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Pilot jolts, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2018 Honda Pilot, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Honda Pilot’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Honda Pilot Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2018 Honda Pilot’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Honda Pilot shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 Honda Pilot’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2018 Honda Pilot 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 alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Honda Pilot 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Honda intended.
  • Does my Honda Pilot power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Pilot’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Honda's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
