Not sure when or if your Kia Sportage’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 2010 Kia Sportage Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2010 Kia Sportage, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Sportage bounces, 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 2010 Kia Sportage in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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.

Kia Sportage Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2010 Kia Sportage suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2010 Kia Sportage’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Kia Sportage shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2010 Kia Sportage’s 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.

2010 Sportage Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Kia Sportage get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Kia intended.
  • Does my Kia Sportage power steering fluid need to be 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 your suspension perform optimally.
