Suspension Service & Repair for 2014 Volkswagen Golf

2014 Volkswagen Golf Maintenance and Service Schedule

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

Does Your 2014 Volkswagen Golf Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2014 Volkswagen Golf, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Golf feels bouncy, sways 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 2014 Volkswagen Golf in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Volkswagen Golf Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2014 Volkswagen Golf’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. 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 Golf’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen Golf shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2014 Volkswagen Golf suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2014 Golf Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volkswagen's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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. 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 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Golf’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Volkswagen service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
