2013 Kia Soul Maintenance Schedule

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

Does Your 2013 Kia Soul Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2013 Kia Soul, 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 jolts, drifts 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 2013 Kia Soul, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Kia Soul’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Kia Soul Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2013 Kia Soul’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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2013 Kia Soul’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Kia Soul shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Soul’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2013 Soul Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Soul's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Kia Soul? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Kia Soul 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 Soul’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Kia's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
