When To Get 2012 Volkswagen Beetle Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2012 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 a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2012 Volkswagen Beetle in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, 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 parts of your Volkswagen Beetle 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Volkswagen Beetle

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2012 Volkswagen Beetle’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 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, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen Beetle shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 Volkswagen Beetle’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2012 Volkswagen Beetle 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volkswagen Beetle? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Volkswagen intended.
  • When does Volkswagen Beetle 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 can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
