Suspension Service & Repair for 2020 Volkswagen GTI

When To Get 2020 Volkswagen GTI Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2020 Volkswagen GTI, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your GTI bounces, sways 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 2020 Volkswagen GTI in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 your GTI steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Volkswagen GTI Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2020 Volkswagen GTI suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. 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 back and forth could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen GTI shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2020 Volkswagen GTI suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2020 Volkswagen GTI Steering & Suspension

  • 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. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Volkswagen GTI get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 come into contact with the road in the way 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’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
