Suspension Service & Repair for 2012 Suzuki SX4

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2012 Suzuki SX4

Is the steering and suspension system in your Suzuki SX4 due for service yet?

Does Your 2012 Suzuki SX4 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2012 Suzuki SX4, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your SX4 feels bouncy, drifts 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 2012 Suzuki SX4, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Suzuki SX4’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Suzuki SX4 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2012 Suzuki SX4’s suspension. 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 Suzuki SX4’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Suzuki SX4 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your SX4’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 SX4 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Suzuki's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Suzuki SX4 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Suzuki SX4 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your SX4’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Suzuki's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
