Is It Time For 2017 Volkswagen Golf Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2017 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. Maybe your Golf jolts, 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 2017 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Golf 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 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

Your 2017 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. 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 getting your 2017 Volkswagen Golf’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Volkswagen Golf shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2017 Volkswagen Golf’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2017 Volkswagen Golf 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 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? 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 connect with the road how Volkswagen intended.
  • Does my Volkswagen Golf power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Golf is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
