2013 Volkswagen Beetle Suspension Service & Repair

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Maintenance Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Volkswagen Beetle due for service yet?

Does Your 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2013 Volkswagen Beetle, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Beetle feels bouncy, sways 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 2013 Volkswagen Beetle in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 Beetle’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Volkswagen Beetle

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2013 Volkswagen Beetle suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Volkswagen up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2013 Volkswagen Beetle shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Volkswagen Beetle shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 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.

2013 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. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volkswagen Beetle? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • Does my Volkswagen Beetle power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Beetle’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
