Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1999 Kia Sportage

When should you have your 1999 Kia Sportage suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 1999 Kia Sportage Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1999 Kia Sportage, 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 Sportage bounces, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1999 Kia Sportage 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, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Sportage suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Kia Sportage’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Kia Sportage

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1999 Kia Sportage’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 limit vibration and keep your Kia up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Sportage’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Kia Sportage shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1999 Kia Sportage’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1999 Sportage Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Kia's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 Sportage? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Kia intended.
  • When does Kia Sportage power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Sportage is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Kia's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
