2016 Kia Soul Maintenance Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Kia Soul due for service yet?

Is It Time For 2016 Kia Soul Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2016 Kia Soul, 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 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 2016 Kia Soul, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Soul suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Kia Soul suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Kia Soul

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2016 Kia Soul’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. 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 Soul’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Kia Soul shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Soul’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.

2016 Soul Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Kia's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Kia Soul? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 does Kia Soul power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Soul is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Kia's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
