2017 A6 Quattro Audi Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2017 Audi A6 Quattro Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2017 Audi A6 Quattro, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your A6 Quattro jolts, sways 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 A6 Quattro, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Audi A6 Quattro’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Audi A6 Quattro Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2017 Audi A6 Quattro’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 A6 Quattro’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Audi A6 Quattro shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2017 Audi A6 Quattro suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2017 A6 Quattro Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Audi's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Audi intended.
  • When does Audi A6 Quattro power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your A6 Quattro’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
