2002 Accent Hyundai Steering & Suspension Services

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2002 Hyundai Accent

Not sure when or if your Hyundai Accent’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2002 Hyundai Accent Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2002 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 noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2002 Hyundai Accent, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Hyundai Accent suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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

Your 2002 Hyundai Accent’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 2002 Hyundai Accent’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Hyundai Accent shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Accent’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2002 Accent Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Hyundai's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new 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 Hyundai Accent? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Hyundai intended.
  • Does my Hyundai Accent 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’ll follow Hyundai service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
