Suspension Service & Repair for 2018 Kia Sportage

2018 Kia Sportage Maintenance Schedule

When does Kia recommend steering and suspension service for 2018 Kia Sportages?

Does Your 2018 Kia Sportage Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2018 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. Perhaps your Sportage feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2018 Kia Sportage in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Kia Sportage Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Kia Sportage’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Kia up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2018 Kia Sportage shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn 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. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2018 Sportage Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Kia's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Kia Sportage? 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’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Kia's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
