2018 Volkswagen Golf R Maintenance Schedule

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

When To Get 2018 Volkswagen Golf R Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2018 Volkswagen Golf R, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Golf R bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2018 Volkswagen Golf R, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Golf R suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Golf R steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Volkswagen Golf R Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Volkswagen Golf R’s suspension. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Golf R’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen Golf R shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 Volkswagen Golf R’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

Questions About 2018 Volkswagen Golf R Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Golf R's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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 Golf R 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. 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.
  • When should I have my Volkswagen Golf R power steering fluid 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 ensure proper suspension operation.
