When To Get 2018 Volkswagen Beetle Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2018 Volkswagen Beetle, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Beetle bounces, sways 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 2018 Volkswagen Beetle in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Volkswagen Beetle suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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

Your 2018 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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2018 Volkswagen Beetle’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Volkswagen Beetle shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 Volkswagen Beetle’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2018 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 alert you to the need for new 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations 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 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 checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Beetle’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Volkswagen service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
