2012 Q5 Audi Steering & Suspension Services

2012 Audi Q5 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2012 Audi Q5 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2012 Audi Q5 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2012 Audi Q5, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Q5 feels bouncy, sways 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 Q5, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Audi Q5 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Audi Q5

Your 2012 Audi Q5’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 Q5’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Audi Q5 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Audi Q5 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2012 Audi Q5 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Audi's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need 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 Q5? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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.
  • When does Audi Q5 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 Q5’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
