2017 Volkswagen GTI Suspension Service & Repair

2017 Volkswagen GTI Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Volkswagen GTI’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2017 Volkswagen GTI Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2017 Volkswagen GTI, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your GTI jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2017 Volkswagen GTI, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your GTI steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen GTI Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2017 Volkswagen GTI’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2017 Volkswagen GTI shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Volkswagen GTI shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2017 Volkswagen GTI’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2017 GTI Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volkswagen's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volkswagen GTI? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Volkswagen intended.
  • Does my Volkswagen GTI power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your GTI is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
