Is It Time For 2021 Kia Rio Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2021 Kia Rio, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Rio jolts, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2021 Kia Rio, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Rio suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Kia Rio suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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

Your 2021 Kia Rio’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. 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 2021 Kia Rio shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the 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 2021 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.

2021 Rio Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Kia's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how 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 Rio’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Kia service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
