2011 Santa Fe Hyundai Steering & Suspension Services

2011 Hyundai Santa Fe Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2011 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, 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 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 parts of your Hyundai Santa Fe suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Hyundai Santa Fe

Your 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, 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.

2011 Santa Fe Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Hyundai's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • 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 right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Hyundai intended.
  • 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’ll top it off per Hyundai's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
