When does Volkswagen recommend steering and suspension service for 2011 Volkswagen Jettas?

Is It Time For 2011 Volkswagen Jetta Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2011 Volkswagen Jetta, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit 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 2011 Volkswagen Jetta, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Volkswagen Jetta suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Jetta Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2011 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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 getting your 2011 Volkswagen Jetta’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your 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. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2011 Volkswagen Jetta Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Jetta's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volkswagen Jetta? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Volkswagen Jetta power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Jetta is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Volkswagen's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
