When does Kia recommend steering and suspension service for 2018 Kia Niros?

Is It Time For 2018 Kia Niro Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2018 Kia Niro, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Niro feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2018 Kia Niro in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle 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 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 parts of your Kia Niro 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 Niro Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2018 Kia Niro’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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2018 Kia Niro shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Kia Niro shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Niro’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
