2007 Kia Sportage Suspension Service & Repair

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2007 Kia Sportage

When should you have your 2007 Kia Sportage suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2007 Kia Sportage Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2007 Kia Sportage, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Sportage jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2007 Kia Sportage in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Sportage steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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

Your 2007 Kia Sportage’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2007 Kia Sportage’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Kia Sportage shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2007 Kia Sportage suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2007 Sportage Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in 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 Sportage get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 the tires connect with the road how Kia intended.
  • When does Kia Sportage 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 Sportage is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Kia service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
