2006 Pontiac Vibe Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 2006 Pontiac Vibe Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2006 Pontiac Vibe, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Vibe jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2006 Pontiac Vibe in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Pontiac Vibe 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 Vibe Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2006 Pontiac Vibe suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 getting your 2006 Pontiac Vibe’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Pontiac Vibe shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2006 Pontiac Vibe suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2006 Vibe Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Vibe's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires 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.
  • Why should my Pontiac Vibe get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Pontiac intended.
  • Does my Pontiac Vibe 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
