2018 Volkswagen Atlas Suspension Service & Repair

2018 Volkswagen Atlas Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Atlas feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 Volkswagen Atlas’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.

Volkswagen Atlas Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Atlas’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen Atlas shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas suspension 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.

Questions About 2018 Volkswagen Atlas Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Volkswagen'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 should my Volkswagen Atlas get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 Volkswagen intended.
  • When does Volkswagen Atlas 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Volkswagen service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
