2018 Kia Sorento Suspension Service & Repair

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2018 Kia Sorento

When should you have your 2018 Kia Sorento suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 2018 Kia Sorento Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2018 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, pulls 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 2018 Kia Sorento, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Kia Sorento

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Kia Sorento’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Kia up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2018 Kia Sorento’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Kia Sorento shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Sorento’s 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.

2018 Sorento Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Kia's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Kia Sorento? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Kia intended.
  • When does Kia Sorento power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 can fill it per Kia's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
