When To Get 2017 Kia Soul Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2017 Kia Soul, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Soul feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2017 Kia Soul in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Kia Soul 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 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2017 Kia Soul’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 limit vibration and keep your Kia up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2017 Kia Soul’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Kia Soul shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Soul’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2017 Soul Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Kia's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Kia Soul get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Kia Soul power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Soul’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Kia service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
