When does Volkswagen recommend steering and suspension service for 2001 Volkswagen Jettas?

Is It Time For 2001 Volkswagen Jetta Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2001 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 an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2001 Volkswagen Jetta in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 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

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2001 Volkswagen Jetta suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2001 Volkswagen Jetta shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Volkswagen Jetta shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2001 Volkswagen Jetta’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2001 Volkswagen Jetta Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volkswagen's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Volkswagen Jetta 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Volkswagen Jetta power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Jetta’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Volkswagen service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
