Is It Time For 1989 Volkswagen Cabriolet Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1989 Volkswagen Cabriolet, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Cabriolet jolts, drifts 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 1989 Volkswagen Cabriolet in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. 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 your Volkswagen Cabriolet’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Cabriolet Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1989 Volkswagen Cabriolet’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 1989 Volkswagen Cabriolet’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 Cabriolet shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1989 Volkswagen Cabriolet suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1989 Volkswagen Cabriolet Steering & Suspension

  • 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 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 Cabriolet? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Volkswagen Cabriolet 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 Cabriolet’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • What can cause my Volkswagen Cabriolet to have a bouncy ride? Damaged struts or shocks can't dampen road bumps properly, causing your vehicle to feel like a trampoline after each dip or bump.
  • Why does my Cabriolet front end dip forward when I brake? When you brake, the forward momentum combined with your vehicle's weight sends a lot of force to the vehicle's front end. A bad suspension can cause all that weight and force to push the front end downward.
  • How do I know if I have worn Volkswagen Cabriolet shocks? Worn Cabriolet shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your Cabriolet might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your Cabriolet shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
