1993 Volkswagen Cabriolet Maintenance Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Volkswagen Cabriolet due for service yet?

When To Get 1993 Volkswagen Cabriolet Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1993 Volkswagen Cabriolet, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Cabriolet jolts, drifts 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 1993 Volkswagen Cabriolet in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, 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 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1993 Volkswagen Cabriolet suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 1993 Volkswagen Cabriolet’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Volkswagen Cabriolet shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1993 Volkswagen Cabriolet suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1993 Cabriolet Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 should my Volkswagen Cabriolet get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 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. If your Cabriolet is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Volkswagen's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
