Is the steering and suspension system in your Audi A5 Quattro due for service yet?

Does Your 2012 Audi A5 Quattro Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2012 Audi A5 Quattro, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your A5 Quattro feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2012 Audi A5 Quattro in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your A5 Quattro suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your A5 Quattro 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Audi A5 Quattro

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 Audi A5 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your A5 Quattro’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Audi A5 Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 Audi A5 Quattro’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.
