2009 G3 Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

2009 Pontiac G3 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2009 Pontiac G3 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2009 Pontiac G3 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2009 Pontiac G3, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your G3 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 2009 Pontiac G3 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Pontiac G3 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac G3 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2009 Pontiac G3’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Pontiac up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2009 Pontiac G3 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Pontiac G3 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your G3’s 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.

2009 G3 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Pontiac G3? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Pontiac G3 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your G3’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Pontiac service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
