2018 Volkswagen GTI Maintenance Schedule

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

Is It Time For 2018 Volkswagen GTI Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2018 Volkswagen GTI, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your GTI jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2018 Volkswagen GTI 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, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your GTI steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen GTI Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Volkswagen GTI’s suspension. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2018 Volkswagen GTI shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Volkswagen GTI shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2018 Volkswagen GTI suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2018 GTI 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 alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Volkswagen GTI? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your GTI is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Volkswagen service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
