Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe

When does Hyundai recommend steering and suspension service for 2006 Hyundai Santa Fes?

Does Your 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2006 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. Maybe your Santa Fe jolts, drifts 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 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, 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 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 Santa Fe steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Hyundai Santa Fe Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe suspension system. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Hyundai Santa Fe shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Santa Fe’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2006 Santa Fe Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Hyundai's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for 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? 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 checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Santa Fe’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Hyundai's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
