When does Saab recommend steering and suspension service for 2010 Saab 9-3Xs?

Does Your 2010 Saab 9-3X Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2010 Saab 9-3X, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 9-3X feels bouncy, 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 2010 Saab 9-3X, bring it 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, 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 your 9-3X suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 9-3X steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Saab 9-3X Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2010 Saab 9-3X’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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 9-3X’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Saab 9-3X shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2010 Saab 9-3X suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2010 9-3X Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Saab's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 Saab 9-3X 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. 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.
  • Does my Saab 9-3X 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 9-3X’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Saab service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
