Does Your 2010 Volkswagen Beetle Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2010 Volkswagen Beetle, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Beetle jolts, pulls 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 2010 Volkswagen Beetle 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Beetle suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Beetle 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.

Volkswagen Beetle Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2010 Volkswagen Beetle suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 Beetle’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen Beetle shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2010 Volkswagen Beetle’s 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.
