1999 Volkswagen Jetta Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1999 Volkswagen Jetta Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1999 Volkswagen Jetta, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Jetta feels bouncy, 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 1999 Volkswagen Jetta, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Volkswagen Jetta’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Volkswagen Jetta Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1999 Volkswagen Jetta suspension system. 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 1999 Volkswagen Jetta shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Volkswagen Jetta shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1999 Volkswagen Jetta 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.

1999 Jetta Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Volkswagen's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volkswagen Jetta? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Volkswagen Jetta 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 Jetta is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Volkswagen service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
