2020 Kia Rio Suspension Service & Repair

2020 Kia Rio Maintenance Schedule

When does Kia recommend steering and suspension service for 2020 Kia Rios?

Does Your 2020 Kia Rio Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2020 Kia Rio, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Rio feels bouncy, sways 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 2020 Kia Rio in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Kia Rio Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2020 Kia Rio suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2020 Kia Rio’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Kia Rio shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2020 Kia Rio suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2020 Rio Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Kia's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Kia Rio get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Kia intended.
  • 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Kia's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
