Does Your 2013 Kia Forte Koup Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2013 Kia Forte Koup, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Forte Koup feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2013 Kia Forte Koup, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Forte Koup 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.

Kia Forte Koup Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2013 Kia Forte Koup suspension system. 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 Kia up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2013 Kia Forte Koup’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Kia Forte Koup shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Forte Koup’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2013 Forte Koup Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Forte Koup's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Kia Forte Koup? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 Kia intended.
  • When does Kia Forte Koup power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Forte Koup is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Kia service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
  • Why is my Kia Forte Koup bouncing excessively? Excessive bouncing in your Kia Forte Koup might be due to damaged struts or shocks that are unable to absorb road bumps effectively, causing your vehicle to feel more like a pogo stick than a smooth ride.
  • Why does my Forte Koup tilt forward when I hit the brakes? The forward momentum and weight transfer to the front wheels during braking can cause your Forte Koup's front end to dip forward. A damaged or faulty suspension system may fail to distribute the weight and force effectively, causing the front end to dip even more.
  • What are the signs that the shocks on my Kia Forte Koup need replacing? Worn Forte Koup shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your Forte Koup might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your Forte Koup shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
