2016 Kia Sportage Suspension Service & Repair

2016 Kia Sportage Maintenance and Service Schedule

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

Does Your 2016 Kia Sportage Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2016 Kia Sportage, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Sportage bounces, pulls 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 2016 Kia Sportage in for steering and suspension services. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Kia Sportage Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2016 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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2016 Kia Sportage’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Kia Sportage shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 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.

Questions About 2016 Kia Sportage Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Kia intended.
  • When should I have my Kia Sportage power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Sportage’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Kia service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
