2006 Saturn Ion Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2006 Saturn Ion Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2006 Saturn Ion, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Ion bounces, pulls 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 2006 Saturn Ion, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. 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 parts of your Saturn Ion suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Saturn Ion

Your 2006 Saturn Ion’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 limit vibration and keep your Saturn up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Ion’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Saturn Ion shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2006 Saturn Ion suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2006 Ion Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Ion's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Saturn Ion? 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 connect with the road how Saturn intended.
  • Does my Saturn Ion 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 Ion is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Saturn's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
