2018 Kia Rio Maintenance and Service Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Kia Rio due for service yet?

When To Get 2018 Kia Rio Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2018 Kia Rio, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Rio bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2018 Kia Rio in for suspension and steering service. 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, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Rio 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 Rio steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Kia Rio Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Kia Rio’s suspension. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2018 Kia Rio shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn 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. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2018 Rio Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Kia's 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. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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 the tires connect with the road how Kia intended.
  • Does my Kia Rio power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Rio is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Kia service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
