Suspension Service & Repair for 2005 Pontiac Sunfire

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2005 Pontiac Sunfire

When does Pontiac recommend steering and suspension service for 2005 Pontiac Sunfires?

Does Your 2005 Pontiac Sunfire Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2005 Pontiac Sunfire, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Sunfire jolts, leans 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 2005 Pontiac Sunfire in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Pontiac Sunfire Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2005 Pontiac Sunfire suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2005 Pontiac Sunfire’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn 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. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 Sunfire Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Sunfire's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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 Pontiac Sunfire? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 Pontiac intended.
  • Does my Pontiac Sunfire 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 Sunfire is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Pontiac service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
