Suspension Service & Repair for 2014 Volkswagen Routan

2014 Volkswagen Routan Maintenance and Service Schedule

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

Does Your 2014 Volkswagen Routan Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2014 Volkswagen Routan, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Routan bounces, drifts 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 2014 Volkswagen Routan in for suspension and steering service. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 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.

Volkswagen Routan Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2014 Volkswagen Routan’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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. 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, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Volkswagen Routan shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Routan’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2014 Routan Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Routan's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 Routan? 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 does Volkswagen Routan power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Routan’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Volkswagen service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
