2017 A3 Audi Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2017 Audi A3 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2017 Audi A3, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your A3 bounces, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2017 Audi A3, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Audi A3’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Audi A3 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2017 Audi A3’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Audi up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2017 Audi A3’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Audi A3 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2017 Audi A3’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2017 A3 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. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Audi A3 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Audi intended.
  • Does my Audi A3 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your A3 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
