2001 Mitsubishi Montero Suspension Service & Repair

2001 Mitsubishi Montero Maintenance Schedule

Not sure when or if your Mitsubishi Montero’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2001 Mitsubishi Montero, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Montero bounces, leans 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 2001 Mitsubishi Montero, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mitsubishi Montero’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mitsubishi Montero

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2001 Mitsubishi Montero’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Montero’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mitsubishi Montero shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Montero’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 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Montero's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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 Mitsubishi Montero? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mitsubishi intended.
  • When does Mitsubishi Montero power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Montero is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Mitsubishi service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
