Not sure when or if your Hyundai Sonata’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 2011 Hyundai Sonata Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2011 Hyundai Sonata, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Sonata jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2011 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Hyundai Sonata Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2011 Hyundai Sonata’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 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 Sonata’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, 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 2011 Hyundai Sonata’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2011 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 help you notice when you need 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 Sonata? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • 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 Sonata’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Hyundai service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
