2011 Saab 9-5 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2011 Saab 9-5 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2011 Saab 9-5 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2011 Saab 9-5, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 9-5 feels bouncy, 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 2011 Saab 9-5 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 check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Saab 9-5’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.

Saab 9-5 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2011 Saab 9-5 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2011 Saab 9-5’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Saab 9-5 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2011 Saab 9-5 suspension 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.

2011 9-5 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 9-5's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Saab 9-5? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Saab intended.
  • When should I have my Saab 9-5 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 9-5 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Saab's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
