2016 Kia Forte Koup Suspension Service & Repair

2016 Kia Forte Koup Maintenance Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Kia Forte Koup due for service yet?

Does Your 2016 Kia Forte Koup Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2016 Kia Forte Koup, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Forte Koup feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2016 Kia Forte Koup, bring it 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, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Forte Koup suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Kia Forte Koup’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Kia Forte Koup Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2016 Kia Forte Koup’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Forte Koup’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Kia Forte Koup shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 Kia Forte Koup suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2016 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 alert you to the need for 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.
  • Why should my Kia Forte Koup 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Kia Forte Koup power steering fluid need to be checked? 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 your suspension perform optimally.
