Suspension Service & Repair for 2016 Kia Forte5

2016 Kia Forte5 Maintenance Schedule

Not sure when or if your Kia Forte5’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Is It Time For 2016 Kia Forte5 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2016 Kia Forte5, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Forte5 feels bouncy, drifts 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 2016 Kia Forte5, 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Forte5 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 Forte5’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 Forte5 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2016 Kia Forte5 suspension system. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Kia up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2016 Kia Forte5 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Kia Forte5 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 Kia Forte5 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2016 Forte5 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Forte5'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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Kia Forte5 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 connect with the road how Kia intended.
  • When should I have my Kia Forte5 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Kia's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
