Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2012 Suzuki Kizashi

When should you have your 2012 Suzuki Kizashi suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2012 Suzuki Kizashi Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2012 Suzuki Kizashi, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Kizashi feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2012 Suzuki Kizashi, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Kizashi suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Kizashi steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Suzuki Kizashi Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2012 Suzuki Kizashi’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Suzuki up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Kizashi’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Suzuki Kizashi shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Suzuki Kizashi suspension 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.

2012 Kizashi Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Kizashi'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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Suzuki Kizashi? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Suzuki Kizashi power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Kizashi is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Suzuki's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
