Is It Time For 2017 Volkswagen Passat Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2017 Volkswagen Passat, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Passat bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2017 Volkswagen Passat in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Passat suspension system needs repair, 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 parts of your Volkswagen Passat suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Passat Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2017 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2017 Volkswagen Passat’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation 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 routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2017 Passat Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volkswagen's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volkswagen Passat? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Volkswagen intended.
  • When should I have my Volkswagen Passat power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Passat is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
