When does Hyundai recommend steering and suspension service for 2002 Hyundai Santa Fes?

Is It Time For 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Santa Fe feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. 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 Santa Fe 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 Santa Fe Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Hyundai Santa Fe shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

2002 Santa Fe Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Hyundai's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 Santa Fe get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Hyundai intended.
  • Does my Hyundai Santa Fe power steering fluid need to be 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’ll top it off per Hyundai's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
