2006 Saturn Vue Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 2006 Saturn Vue Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2006 Saturn Vue, 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 Vue feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2006 Saturn Vue 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub 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 your Saturn Vue’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Saturn Vue Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2006 Saturn Vue’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 Vue’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Saturn Vue shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Vue’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 2006 Saturn Vue Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Vue's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Saturn Vue? 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.
  • When does Saturn Vue power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 Saturn's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
