When does Volkswagen recommend steering and suspension service for 1997 Volkswagen EuroVans?

Is It Time For 1997 Volkswagen EuroVan Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1997 Volkswagen EuroVan, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your EuroVan feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1997 Volkswagen EuroVan in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Volkswagen EuroVan’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 EuroVan Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1997 Volkswagen EuroVan’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 EuroVan’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Volkswagen EuroVan shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1997 Volkswagen EuroVan suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1997 EuroVan Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Volkswagen's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 EuroVan 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 EuroVan power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your EuroVan’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
