Your front and rear shock absorbers play an essential role in absorbing impact, road-holding, and the comfortable driving of your Fiat MULTIPLA. Their lifespan is 60,000 to 100,000 miles, but it is recommended to check them every 20,000 miles. Front shock absorbers that have reached the end of their life are dangerous, because they no longer help the vehicle hold the road, and grip on turns in the rain and on braking are greatly reduced. The price of new Fiat shock absorbers will vary between £30 and £60, depending on the manufacturer.
Wear and tear will depend on the environment in which you drive (for example, mountainous or urban areas), as well as your driving style (sporty or relaxed).
Wear may be observed in your Fiat MULTIPLA shock absorbers when parking on a flat surface. An oil leak, or abnormal and irregular wear on the tyres represent visible signs of worn shock absorbers. Press down on the bumper of your Fiat MULTIPLA and then relax the pressure; if you notice that the vehicle "bounces" (in an oscillating movement), your shock absorbers have probably reached the end of their life. Even if they are sold individually, it is absolutely essential to purchase and change them in pairs, in order to avoid throwing your MULTIPLA out of balance. Mister-Auto offers top brands of shock absorber, such as KYB, MONROE or SACHS.
