2003 Hyundai Sonata Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2003 Hyundai Sonata suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 2003 Hyundai Sonata Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2003 Hyundai Sonata, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Sonata feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2003 Hyundai Sonata in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Sonata suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Sonata steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Hyundai Sonata Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2003 Hyundai Sonata suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 getting your 2003 Hyundai Sonata’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Hyundai Sonata shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2003 Hyundai Sonata’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2003 Sonata Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Sonata's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Hyundai Sonata 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. 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? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Sonata’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Hyundai's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
