2007 Kia Optima Maintenance and Service Schedule

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

Is It Time For 2007 Kia Optima Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2007 Kia Optima, 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 Optima bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2007 Kia Optima, 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel 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 Optima suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Kia Optima

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2007 Kia Optima suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Optima’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Kia Optima shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2007 Kia Optima suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2007 Kia Optima Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Kia's 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 Optima get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Kia intended.
  • When should I have my Kia Optima power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Optima is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Kia's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
