2005 Jetta Volkswagen Steering & Suspension Services

2005 Volkswagen Jetta Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2005 Volkswagen Jetta suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2005 Volkswagen Jetta Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2005 Volkswagen Jetta, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Jetta jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2005 Volkswagen Jetta, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 Volkswagen Jetta’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Jetta Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2005 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 2005 Volkswagen Jetta shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Volkswagen Jetta shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Jetta’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2005 Volkswagen Jetta Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volkswagen's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Volkswagen Jetta? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
