2012 Audi A6 Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 2012 Audi A6 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2012 Audi A6, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your A6 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2012 Audi A6, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 A6 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2012 Audi A6’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. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your A6’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Audi A6 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Audi A6 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 A6 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my A6's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Audi A6? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Audi intended.
  • Does my Audi A6 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your A6 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Audi's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
