During the first few years you had your 2018 Audi Q5, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Q5 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2018 Audi Q5 in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Q5 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Audi Q5 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2018 Audi Q5 suspension system. 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 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, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Audi Q5 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 Audi Q5’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
