2006 Kia Sorento Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2006 Kia Sorento suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2006 Kia Sorento Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2006 Kia Sorento, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Sorento bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2006 Kia Sorento, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Kia Sorento’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Kia Sorento Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2006 Kia Sorento’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2006 Kia Sorento shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Kia Sorento shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2006 Kia Sorento suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2006 Sorento Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Kia's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 should my Kia Sorento get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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 Sorento 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 Sorento is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Kia's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
