Does Your 2012 Hyundai Sonata Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2012 Hyundai Sonata, 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 Sonata jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2012 Hyundai Sonata in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, 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 Sonata suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Hyundai Sonata Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2012 Hyundai Sonata’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Sonata’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Hyundai Sonata shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Sonata’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 Sonata Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Sonata's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Hyundai intended.
  • When does Hyundai Sonata power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Sonata is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Hyundai's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
