When To Get 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Santa Fe feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Santa Fe suspension system needs repair, 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 Hyundai Santa Fe’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Hyundai Santa Fe Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Santa Fe’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Hyundai Santa Fe shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Santa Fe’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2003 Santa Fe Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Santa Fe's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Hyundai Santa Fe? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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 Santa Fe power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Santa Fe’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Hyundai's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
