Is the steering and suspension system in your Hyundai Santa Fe due for service yet?

Is It Time For 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Santa Fe feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe 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, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 parts of your Hyundai Santa Fe suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Hyundai Santa Fe

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2005 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 things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Hyundai Santa Fe shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 Santa Fe Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Hyundai Santa Fe 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. 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 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 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Hyundai's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
