2017 Kia Rio Suspension Service & Repair

2017 Kia Rio Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2017 Kia Rio suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2017 Kia Rio Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2017 Kia Rio, 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 Rio jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2017 Kia Rio in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2017 Kia Rio’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Kia up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2017 Kia Rio shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Kia Rio shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Rio’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2017 Rio Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Kia's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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 should my Kia Rio get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 does Kia Rio power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Rio’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Kia's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
