Is It Time For 2008 Audi A3 Quattro Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2008 Audi A3 Quattro, 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 A3 Quattro bounces, leans 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 2008 Audi A3 Quattro in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your A3 Quattro 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.

Audi A3 Quattro Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2008 Audi A3 Quattro’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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your A3 Quattro’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Audi A3 Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2008 Audi A3 Quattro’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2008 A3 Quattro Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my A3 Quattro's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Audi A3 Quattro? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Audi intended.
  • When should I have my Audi A3 Quattro power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your A3 Quattro’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
