2017 Jetta Volkswagen Steering & Suspension Services

2017 Volkswagen Jetta Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Volkswagen recommend steering and suspension service for 2017 Volkswagen Jettas?

When To Get 2017 Volkswagen Jetta Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2017 Volkswagen Jetta, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Jetta feels bouncy, 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 2017 Volkswagen Jetta, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2017 Volkswagen Jetta’s suspension. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Jetta’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen Jetta shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Jetta’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2017 Jetta Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Volkswagen's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires 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 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 smoothly.
