2019 GTI Volkswagen Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2019 Volkswagen GTI Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2019 Volkswagen GTI, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your GTI bounces, 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 2019 Volkswagen GTI in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2019 Volkswagen GTI suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2019 Volkswagen GTI shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen GTI shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2019 Volkswagen GTI suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
