2009 Routan Volkswagen Steering & Suspension Services

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2009 Volkswagen Routan

When should you have your 2009 Volkswagen Routan suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2009 Volkswagen Routan Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2009 Volkswagen Routan, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Routan bounces, pulls 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 2009 Volkswagen Routan in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Routan suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Volkswagen Routan’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Volkswagen Routan Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2009 Volkswagen Routan’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Routan’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Volkswagen Routan shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2009 Volkswagen Routan suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2009 Volkswagen Routan 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Volkswagen Routan 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. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Volkswagen intended.
  • When should I have my Volkswagen Routan power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Volkswagen service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
