During the first few years you had your 2006 Volkswagen GTI, 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 GTI bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2006 Volkswagen GTI in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.
The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your GTI 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 GTI’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.
Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2006 Volkswagen GTI’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Volkswagen up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2006 Volkswagen GTI’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Volkswagen GTI shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2006 Volkswagen GTI suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.
