Suspension Service & Repair for 2015 Kia Rio

2015 Kia Rio Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Kia recommend steering and suspension service for 2015 Kia Rios?

Does Your 2015 Kia Rio Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2015 Kia Rio, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Rio bounces, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2015 Kia Rio 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Kia Rio suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Kia Rio Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2015 Kia Rio’s suspension. 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 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 Rio’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Kia Rio shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2015 Kia Rio’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

2015 Rio Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Rio's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Kia Rio? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Kia Rio power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Rio is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Kia's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
