2014 Volkswagen Beetle Suspension Service & Repair

2014 Volkswagen Beetle Maintenance Schedule

Not sure when or if your Volkswagen Beetle’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2014 Volkswagen Beetle Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2014 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. Perhaps your Beetle feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2014 Volkswagen Beetle in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2014 Volkswagen Beetle’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2014 Volkswagen Beetle’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side 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 2014 Volkswagen Beetle suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2014 Beetle Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Beetle's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations 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 right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Volkswagen intended.
  • Does my Volkswagen Beetle power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Volkswagen service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
