2017 Forte Kia Steering & Suspension Services

2017 Kia Forte Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2017 Kia Forte suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 2017 Kia Forte Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2017 Kia Forte, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Forte feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2017 Kia Forte in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 your Forte steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Kia Forte

Your 2017 Kia Forte’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2017 Kia Forte shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Kia Forte shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2017 Kia Forte’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2017 Forte Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Kia's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Kia Forte? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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 Kia intended.
  • When does Kia Forte power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Kia's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
