2013 Audi A3 Quattro Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2013 Audi A3 Quattro Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2013 Audi A3 Quattro, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your A3 Quattro jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2013 Audi A3 Quattro in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your A3 Quattro 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 A3 Quattro steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Audi A3 Quattro

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2013 Audi A3 Quattro suspension system. 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 Audi up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2013 Audi A3 Quattro’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 an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Audi A3 Quattro shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2013 Audi A3 Quattro suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
