2005 Kia Sorento Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Kia Sorento’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 2005 Kia Sorento Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2005 Kia Sorento, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Sorento feels bouncy, drifts 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 2005 Kia Sorento, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Sorento 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 your Kia Sorento’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Kia Sorento

Your 2005 Kia Sorento’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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Sorento’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Kia Sorento shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Sorento’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 Sorento Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Sorento's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Kia Sorento? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 should I have my Kia Sorento power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Sorento’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Kia service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
