Does Your 2017 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2017 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your A3 Sportback e-tron jolts, sways 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 2017 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, 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 steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your A3 Sportback e-tron steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Audi A3 Sportback e-tron Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2017 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your A3 Sportback e-tron’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Audi A3 Sportback e-tron shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2017 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2017 A3 Sportback e-tron Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Audi's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Audi A3 Sportback e-tron? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Audi A3 Sportback e-tron power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your A3 Sportback e-tron is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Audi's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • Why is my Audi A3 Sportback e-tron bouncing excessively? Damaged struts or shocks can't dampen road bumps properly, causing your vehicle to feel like a trampoline after each dip or bump.
  • Why does my A3 Sportback e-tron's nose dive down 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? If your A3 Sportback e-tron shock absorbers are worn out, they won’t be able to properly dampen road bumps. You might experience a bouncy or unstable ride, especially over bumps or rough roads. Your A3 Sportback e-tron might also feel like it sways or rolls as you turn.
