When should you have your 2016 Volkswagen Golf R suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 2016 Volkswagen Golf R Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2016 Volkswagen Golf R, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Golf R jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2016 Volkswagen Golf R in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Golf R steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Golf R Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2016 Volkswagen Golf R’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 2016 Volkswagen Golf R’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Volkswagen Golf R shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Golf R’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2016 Volkswagen Golf R Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Golf R's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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 Golf R? 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 the tires connect with the road how Volkswagen intended.
  • Does my Volkswagen Golf R power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Golf R is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Volkswagen service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
