2018 Volkswagen Jetta Suspension Service & Repair

2018 Volkswagen Jetta Maintenance Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Volkswagen Jetta due for service yet?

Does Your 2018 Volkswagen Jetta Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2018 Volkswagen Jetta, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Jetta bounces, leans 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 2018 Volkswagen Jetta, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. 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 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

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2018 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2018 Volkswagen Jetta’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs 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. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2018 Jetta Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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 connect with the road how Volkswagen intended.
  • Does my Volkswagen Jetta power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Jetta’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Volkswagen's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
