2016 Audi A3 Quattro Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2016 Audi A3 Quattro Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2016 Audi A3 Quattro, 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 A3 Quattro feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2016 Audi A3 Quattro in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your A3 Quattro suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Audi A3 Quattro’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Audi A3 Quattro Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2016 Audi A3 Quattro suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your A3 Quattro’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Audi A3 Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your A3 Quattro’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

2016 A3 Quattro Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my A3 Quattro's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Audi A3 Quattro? 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 the tires connect with the road how 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.
