2018 Kia Forte5 Maintenance Schedule

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

Is It Time For 2018 Kia Forte5 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2018 Kia Forte5, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Forte5 bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2018 Kia Forte5 in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Forte5 suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Forte5 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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

Your 2018 Kia Forte5’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 2018 Kia Forte5’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Kia Forte5 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 Kia Forte5’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2018 Kia Forte5 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Forte5'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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Kia Forte5? 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.
  • When should I have my Kia Forte5 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Forte5 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Kia service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
