When does Volkswagen recommend steering and suspension service for 2009 Volkswagen Passats?

Is It Time For 2009 Volkswagen Passat Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2009 Volkswagen Passat, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Passat bounces, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2009 Volkswagen Passat in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 Passat steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Volkswagen Passat Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2009 Volkswagen Passat suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 2009 Volkswagen Passat shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen Passat shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Passat’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2009 Volkswagen Passat Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Volkswagen's 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. 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 the tires connect with the road how Volkswagen intended.
  • When does Volkswagen Passat power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 top it off per Volkswagen's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
