2018 Audi A3 Quattro Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 2018 Audi A3 Quattro Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2018 Audi A3 Quattro, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your A3 Quattro jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2018 Audi A3 Quattro in for suspension and steering service. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. 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 parts of your Audi A3 Quattro suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Audi A3 Quattro

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Audi A3 Quattro’s suspension. 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 2018 Audi A3 Quattro’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Audi A3 Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 Audi A3 Quattro’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2018 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • 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 come into contact with the road in the way Audi intended.
  • When should I have my Audi A3 Quattro power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
