Is It Time For 2005 Volkswagen Passat Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2005 Volkswagen Passat, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Passat feels bouncy, 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 2005 Volkswagen Passat, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 Passat steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Passat Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2005 Volkswagen Passat’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Volkswagen up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2005 Volkswagen Passat’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Volkswagen Passat shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2005 Volkswagen Passat suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
