1999 Beetle Volkswagen Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1999 Volkswagen Beetle Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1999 Volkswagen Beetle, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Beetle jolts, drifts 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 1999 Volkswagen Beetle, 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, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. 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 Volkswagen Beetle’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 Beetle Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1999 Volkswagen Beetle suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Volkswagen up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Beetle’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen Beetle shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1999 Volkswagen Beetle suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1999 Beetle Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volkswagen's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Volkswagen Beetle get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 Volkswagen intended.
  • When should I have my Volkswagen Beetle power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Beetle is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
