Suspension Service & Repair for 2016 Kia Sorento

2016 Kia Sorento Maintenance Schedule

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

Does Your 2016 Kia Sorento Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2016 Kia Sorento, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Sorento bounces, leans 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 2016 Kia Sorento in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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 absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, 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 Sorento steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Kia Sorento Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2016 Kia Sorento’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. 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. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Kia Sorento shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 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.

2016 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 alert you to the need for 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. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all 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 can fill it per Kia's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
