2019 Kia Forte Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2019 Kia Forte suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 2019 Kia Forte Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2019 Kia Forte, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Forte jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2019 Kia Forte in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Kia Forte suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Kia Forte Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2019 Kia Forte’s suspension. 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 getting your 2019 Kia Forte’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Kia Forte shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Forte’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2019 Kia Forte Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Forte's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Kia Forte? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Kia Forte power steering fluid need to be 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 top it off per Kia's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
