When you first bought your 2003 Kia Optima, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Optima feels bouncy, 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 2003 Kia Optima in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 Kia Optima’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2003 Kia Optima suspension system. 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 limit vibration and keep your Kia up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2003 Kia Optima shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Kia Optima shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2003 Kia Optima suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.
