When does Pontiac recommend steering and suspension service for 2003 Pontiac Sunfires?

Is It Time For 2003 Pontiac Sunfire Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2003 Pontiac Sunfire, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Sunfire bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2003 Pontiac Sunfire in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 Pontiac Sunfire’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 Pontiac Sunfire

Your 2003 Pontiac Sunfire’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Pontiac up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Sunfire’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Pontiac Sunfire shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Sunfire’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2003 Pontiac Sunfire Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 should my Pontiac Sunfire get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Pontiac Sunfire power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
