2019 Soul EV Kia Steering & Suspension Services

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2019 Kia Soul EV

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

Does Your 2019 Kia Soul EV Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2019 Kia Soul EV, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Soul EV jolts, pulls 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 2019 Kia Soul EV 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, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Kia Soul EV’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Kia Soul EV Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2019 Kia Soul EV’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. 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. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Kia Soul EV shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2019 Kia Soul EV’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2019 Soul EV Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Kia Soul EV? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Kia Soul EV power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Soul EV’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Kia's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
