When To Get 2007 Volkswagen Passat Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2007 Volkswagen Passat, 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 Passat bounces, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2007 Volkswagen Passat in for suspension and steering service. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. 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 Passat’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 Passat Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2007 Volkswagen Passat’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 limit vibration and keep your Volkswagen up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2007 Volkswagen Passat shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Volkswagen Passat shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2007 Volkswagen Passat’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2007 Volkswagen Passat Steering & Suspension

  • 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 alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Volkswagen Passat? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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 Passat power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Passat’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Volkswagen's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
