2017 Santa Fe Hyundai Steering & Suspension Services

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

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

Does Your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Santa Fe bounces, 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 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Hyundai Santa Fe Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2017 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Hyundai up 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 back and forth 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 routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2017 Santa Fe Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Santa Fe's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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? 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? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Hyundai service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
