2017 Kia Sportage Suspension Service & Repair

2017 Kia Sportage Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2017 Kia Sportage suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2017 Kia Sportage Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2017 Kia Sportage, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Sportage jolts, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2017 Kia Sportage in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Kia Sportage’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Kia Sportage Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2017 Kia Sportage suspension system. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Sportage’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. 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 routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2017 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Kia Sportage? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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? 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 your suspension perform optimally.
