1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Cabriolet feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Cabriolet suspension system needs repair, 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 Cabriolet suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Volkswagen Cabriolet Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet suspension system. 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 1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen Cabriolet shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet’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.

1988 Cabriolet Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volkswagen's suspension?

  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volkswagen Cabriolet? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 Cabriolet 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.
