When does Hyundai recommend steering and suspension service for 2012 Hyundai Santa Fes?

When To Get 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Santa Fe jolts, pulls 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 2012 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 technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, 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 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 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 2012 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 limit vibration and keep your Hyundai up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Hyundai Santa Fe shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Hyundai's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Hyundai intended.
  • When should I have my Hyundai Santa Fe power steering fluid 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 follow Hyundai service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
