Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2010 Volkswagen Routan

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

Does Your 2010 Volkswagen Routan Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2010 Volkswagen Routan, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Routan feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2010 Volkswagen Routan in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 Routan 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 Routan Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2010 Volkswagen Routan’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Volkswagen up 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. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Volkswagen Routan shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2010 Volkswagen Routan suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

2010 Routan Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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. 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. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Volkswagen Routan power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Routan is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Volkswagen's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
