2010 Volkswagen Passat Suspension Service & Repair

2010 Volkswagen Passat Maintenance Schedule

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

Does Your 2010 Volkswagen Passat Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2010 Volkswagen Passat, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Passat bounces, sways 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 2010 Volkswagen Passat, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Volkswagen Passat

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2010 Volkswagen Passat’s suspension. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Passat’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your 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 2010 Volkswagen Passat Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volkswagen's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • 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. 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.
  • When does Volkswagen Passat power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Passat’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Volkswagen's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
