Does Your 2006 Audi A6 Quattro Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2006 Audi A6 Quattro, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your A6 Quattro jolts, pulls 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 2006 Audi A6 Quattro in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub 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 A6 Quattro steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Audi A6 Quattro Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2006 Audi A6 Quattro’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 2006 Audi A6 Quattro’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Audi A6 Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your A6 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.

2006 A6 Quattro Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my A6 Quattro's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Audi A6 Quattro? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • Does my Audi A6 Quattro 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 A6 Quattro is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Audi's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
