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

Is It Time For 1990 Volkswagen Jetta Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1990 Volkswagen Jetta, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Jetta jolts, leans 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 1990 Volkswagen Jetta in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Jetta suspension system needs repair, 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 Jetta 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 Jetta Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1990 Volkswagen Jetta’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Volkswagen up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1990 Volkswagen Jetta’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Volkswagen Jetta shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 Volkswagen Jetta’s 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.

1990 Jetta Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Volkswagen's suspension? Maintaining your tires 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 should my Volkswagen Jetta get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 come into contact with the road in the way Volkswagen intended.
  • When should I have my Volkswagen Jetta power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Jetta’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Volkswagen service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
