2007 Volkswagen GTI Suspension Service & Repair

2007 Volkswagen GTI Maintenance and Service Schedule

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

Does Your 2007 Volkswagen GTI Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2007 Volkswagen GTI, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your GTI bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2007 Volkswagen GTI in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Volkswagen GTI suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Volkswagen GTI

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2007 Volkswagen GTI suspension system. 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 limit vibration and keep your Volkswagen up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your GTI’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen GTI shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your GTI’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2007 GTI Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my GTI's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need 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 GTI 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Volkswagen intended.
  • When does Volkswagen GTI 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
