1997 Volkswagen Cabrio Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 1997 Volkswagen Cabrio suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 1997 Volkswagen Cabrio Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1997 Volkswagen Cabrio, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Cabrio bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1997 Volkswagen Cabrio, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Volkswagen Cabrio’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Cabrio Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1997 Volkswagen Cabrio’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1997 Volkswagen Cabrio shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen Cabrio shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1997 Volkswagen Cabrio’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1997 Cabrio Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Cabrio's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volkswagen Cabrio? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Volkswagen intended.
  • Does my Volkswagen Cabrio power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Cabrio is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
