2008 Volkswagen Passat Suspension Service & Repair

2008 Volkswagen Passat Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Volkswagen Passat’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2008 Volkswagen Passat Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2008 Volkswagen Passat, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Passat feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2008 Volkswagen Passat, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Volkswagen Passat’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Passat Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2008 Volkswagen Passat’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 2008 Volkswagen Passat’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Volkswagen Passat shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Volkswagen Passat suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2008 Passat Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Passat's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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 Passat get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires 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 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Volkswagen service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
