When To Get 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your XV Crosstrek jolts, 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 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Subaru XV Crosstrek 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.

Subaru XV Crosstrek Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek’s suspension. 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 Subaru up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Subaru XV Crosstrek shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
