When you first bought your 2011 Kia Optima, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Optima bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2011 Kia Optima, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2011 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2011 Kia Optima’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Kia Optima shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2011 Kia Optima’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
