2010 Kia Optima Suspension Service & Repair

2010 Kia Optima Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2010 Kia Optima suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2010 Kia Optima Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2010 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 jolts, leans 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 2010 Kia Optima in for suspension and steering service. 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 absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Optima suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Kia Optima 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Kia Optima

Your 2010 Kia Optima’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Kia up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2010 Kia Optima shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Kia Optima shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2010 Kia Optima’s 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.

2010 Optima Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Kia's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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. 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 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 can fill it per Kia's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
