We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper 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 car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost.

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my A3 Sportback e-tron's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Why should my Audi A3 Sportback e-tron get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Audi A3 Sportback e-tron power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your A3 Sportback e-tron is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Audi's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • Why does my Audi A3 Sportback e-tron bounce so much? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your A3 Sportback e-tron to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my A3 Sportback e-tron tilt forward when I hit the brakes? As you brake, the forward momentum of your A3 Sportback e-tron combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • How can I tell if the shocks on my Audi A3 Sportback e-tron are bad? Worn A3 Sportback e-tron shock absorbers can cause your vehicle to feel like it's bouncing or hopping over bumps instead of absorbing the impacts smoothly. You may also experience more body roll when turning.
