Does Your 2012 Volkswagen Routan Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2012 Volkswagen Routan, 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 Routan bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2012 Volkswagen Routan in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Routan suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Volkswagen Routan suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Volkswagen Routan

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2012 Volkswagen Routan’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Volkswagen up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2012 Volkswagen Routan shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Volkswagen Routan shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 Volkswagen Routan’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
