2003 Hyundai Accent Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2003 Hyundai Accent suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 2003 Hyundai Accent Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2003 Hyundai Accent, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Accent feels bouncy, pulls 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 2003 Hyundai Accent in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil 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 steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Hyundai Accent’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Hyundai Accent Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2003 Hyundai Accent’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Hyundai up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2003 Hyundai Accent’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Hyundai Accent shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2003 Hyundai Accent’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2003 Accent Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Hyundai's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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 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 should I have my Hyundai Accent power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Accent is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Hyundai service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
