When does Volkswagen recommend steering and suspension service for 1990 Volkswagen Cabriolets?

When To Get 1990 Volkswagen Cabriolet Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1990 Volkswagen Cabriolet, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Cabriolet bounces, drifts 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 1990 Volkswagen Cabriolet in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Volkswagen Cabriolet suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Cabriolet Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1990 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. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Cabriolet’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Volkswagen Cabriolet shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Cabriolet’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1990 Volkswagen Cabriolet Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Cabriolet's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires 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 should my Volkswagen Cabriolet get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Volkswagen intended.
  • When should I have my Volkswagen Cabriolet power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Cabriolet’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Volkswagen service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
