2015 Kia Optima Suspension Service & Repair

2015 Kia Optima Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2015 Kia Optima suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2015 Kia Optima Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2015 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. Maybe your Optima jolts, leans 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 2015 Kia Optima in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Optima suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Optima steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Kia Optima Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2015 Kia Optima’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2015 Kia Optima shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Kia Optima shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Optima’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2015 Kia Optima Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Optima's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Kia Optima? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Kia intended.
  • When should I have my Kia Optima power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Optima is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Kia's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
