Suspension Service & Repair for 2015 Kia Sportage

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2015 Kia Sportage

When should you have your 2015 Kia Sportage suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2015 Kia Sportage Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2015 Kia Sportage, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Sportage feels bouncy, 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 2015 Kia Sportage in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Sportage suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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.

Kia Sportage Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2015 Kia Sportage’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Kia up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2015 Kia Sportage shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Kia Sportage shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Sportage’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2015 Sportage Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Kia's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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? 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 Sportage power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Kia's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
