When should you have your 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250, 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 CLA250 bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your CLA250 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mercedes-Benz CLA250’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.

Mercedes-Benz CLA250 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz CLA250 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your CLA250’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2014 CLA250 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mercedes-Benz'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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mercedes-Benz CLA250? 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 Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz CLA250 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your CLA250 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
