Does Your 2012 Subaru Impreza Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2012 Subaru Impreza, 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 Impreza bounces, sways 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 2012 Subaru Impreza in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Impreza suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Impreza steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Subaru Impreza Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 Subaru Impreza 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2012 Subaru Impreza’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Subaru Impreza shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 Subaru Impreza’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.

Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Subaru intended.
  • When does Subaru Impreza power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months.
