Suspension Service & Repair for 2006 Volkswagen Golf

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2006 Volkswagen Golf

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

Does Your 2006 Volkswagen Golf Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2006 Volkswagen Golf, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Golf bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2006 Volkswagen Golf in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Golf suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Volkswagen Golf’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Golf Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2006 Volkswagen Golf’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 2006 Volkswagen Golf’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Volkswagen Golf shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2006 Volkswagen Golf suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2006 Golf Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volkswagen's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need 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 Golf 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Volkswagen intended.
  • When should I have my Volkswagen Golf power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Golf’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
