When To Get 2017 Kia Soul EV Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2017 Kia Soul EV, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Soul EV bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2017 Kia Soul EV in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Soul EV suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Kia Soul EV suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Kia Soul EV Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2017 Kia Soul EV’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 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 Soul EV’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Kia Soul EV shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Soul EV’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
