Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1998 Hyundai Accent

When does Hyundai recommend steering and suspension service for 1998 Hyundai Accents?

Does Your 1998 Hyundai Accent Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1998 Hyundai Accent, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Accent jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1998 Hyundai Accent in for steering and suspension services. 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, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 Accent 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.

Hyundai Accent Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1998 Hyundai Accent’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Hyundai Accent shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Hyundai Accent’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1998 Accent Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Hyundai's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Hyundai Accent? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Hyundai Accent 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Hyundai's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
