2006 Rabbit Volkswagen Steering & Suspension Services

2006 Volkswagen Rabbit Maintenance Schedule

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

Does Your 2006 Volkswagen Rabbit Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2006 Volkswagen Rabbit, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Rabbit feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2006 Volkswagen Rabbit, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 Rabbit steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Rabbit Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2006 Volkswagen Rabbit suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2006 Volkswagen Rabbit’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Volkswagen Rabbit shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Rabbit’s 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.

Questions About 2006 Volkswagen Rabbit Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Rabbit's steering and 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 Rabbit? 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 should I have my Volkswagen Rabbit power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Volkswagen's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
