Suspension Service & Repair for 2011 Kia Sorento

2011 Kia Sorento Maintenance Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Kia Sorento due for service yet?

Is It Time For 2011 Kia Sorento Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2011 Kia Sorento, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Sorento feels bouncy, 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 2011 Kia Sorento, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 parts of your Kia Sorento suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Kia Sorento Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2011 Kia Sorento suspension system. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Sorento’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Kia Sorento shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2011 Kia Sorento suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2011 Sorento Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Sorento's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • 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. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Kia's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
