2015 Kia Forte Maintenance and Service Schedule

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

Is It Time For 2015 Kia Forte Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2015 Kia Forte, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Forte jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2015 Kia Forte, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Kia Forte’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Kia Forte Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2015 Kia Forte’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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2015 Kia Forte’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Kia Forte shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2015 Kia Forte suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2015 Forte Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Forte'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.
  • Why should my Kia Forte 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 come into contact with the road in the way Kia intended.
  • When should I have my Kia Forte power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Forte’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Kia service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
