2001 Hyundai Santa Fe Suspension Service & Repair

2001 Hyundai Santa Fe Maintenance and Service Schedule

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

Does Your 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe, 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 Santa Fe feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Santa Fe suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Hyundai Santa Fe’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 Santa Fe Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Hyundai Santa Fe shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe’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.

2001 Santa Fe Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Santa Fe's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Hyundai Santa Fe? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Hyundai Santa Fe power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Santa Fe’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Hyundai's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
