Suspension Service & Repair for 2013 Kia Sorento

2013 Kia Sorento Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Kia recommend steering and suspension service for 2013 Kia Sorentos?

Does Your 2013 Kia Sorento Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2013 Kia Sorento, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Sorento feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2013 Kia Sorento in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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.

Kia Sorento Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2013 Kia Sorento’s suspension. 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. 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. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Kia Sorento shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Sorento’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2013 Kia Sorento Steering & Suspension

  • 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 let you know when it's time to replace your 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. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • 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 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Kia's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
