Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2012 Volkswagen Jetta

When does Volkswagen recommend steering and suspension service for 2012 Volkswagen Jettas?

Does Your 2012 Volkswagen Jetta Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2012 Volkswagen Jetta, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Jetta bounces, 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 2012 Volkswagen Jetta, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. 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 a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Jetta Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 Volkswagen Jetta suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Volkswagen up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2012 Volkswagen Jetta shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen Jetta shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 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.

2012 Jetta Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volkswagen's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Volkswagen intended.
  • When should I have my Volkswagen Jetta power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
