When To Get 1996 Hyundai Accent Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1996 Hyundai Accent, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Accent feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1996 Hyundai Accent in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Accent suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Accent steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Hyundai Accent Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1996 Hyundai Accent suspension system. 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 Hyundai up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Accent’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Hyundai Accent shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1996 Hyundai Accent’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1996 Hyundai Accent Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Accent's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 Hyundai Accent get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 Hyundai intended.
  • When does Hyundai Accent 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 Accent’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Hyundai's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
