2001 Sonata Hyundai Steering & Suspension Services

2001 Hyundai Sonata Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2001 Hyundai Sonata suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2001 Hyundai Sonata Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2001 Hyundai Sonata, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Sonata feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2001 Hyundai Sonata in for suspension and steering service. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 Sonata 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 Sonata Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2001 Hyundai Sonata suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2001 Hyundai Sonata’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Hyundai Sonata shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Sonata’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2001 Hyundai Sonata Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Sonata's steering and 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. 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 Sonata? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Hyundai intended.
  • When should I have my Hyundai Sonata 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.
