When To Get 2012 Volkswagen Golf R Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2012 Volkswagen Golf R, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Golf R jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2012 Volkswagen Golf R, bring it 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Golf R suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Volkswagen Golf R’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Volkswagen Golf R Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2012 Volkswagen Golf R’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Volkswagen up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2012 Volkswagen Golf R shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Volkswagen Golf R shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 Volkswagen Golf R’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2012 Volkswagen Golf R Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Volkswagen's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volkswagen Golf R? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Volkswagen intended.
  • When does Volkswagen Golf R 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 Golf R’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
