When you first drove your 2005 Saturn Ion, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Ion feels bouncy, leans 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 2005 Saturn Ion in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Ion suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Saturn Ion suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2005 Saturn Ion suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2005 Saturn Ion’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Saturn Ion shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Ion’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
