When To Get 2010 Kia Rio5 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2010 Kia Rio5, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Rio5 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2010 Kia Rio5 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Kia Rio5’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Kia Rio5 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2010 Kia Rio5 suspension system. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Rio5’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Kia Rio5 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2010 Kia Rio5 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.

Questions About 2010 Kia Rio5 Steering & Suspension

  • 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Kia Rio5? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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.
  • When does Kia Rio5 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 ensure proper suspension operation.
