2003 Jetta Volkswagen Steering & Suspension Services

2003 Volkswagen Jetta Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2003 Volkswagen Jetta suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2003 Volkswagen Jetta Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2003 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, 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 2003 Volkswagen Jetta in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Jetta suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2003 Volkswagen Jetta’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2003 Volkswagen Jetta’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen Jetta shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Jetta’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2003 Jetta Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volkswagen Jetta? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Volkswagen intended.
  • When does Volkswagen Jetta power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 your suspension perform optimally.
