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

Is It Time For 2005 Kia Sportage Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2005 Kia Sportage, 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 Sportage feels bouncy, leans 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 2005 Kia Sportage, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Sportage steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Kia Sportage

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2005 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. But there's no set schedule for 2005 Kia Sportage shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Kia Sportage shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2005 Kia Sportage suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 Sportage Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Sportage's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Kia Sportage? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • When should I have my Kia Sportage power steering fluid checked? 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 can fill it per Kia's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
