Is the steering and suspension system in your Volkswagen Tiguan due for service yet?

When To Get 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Tiguan feels bouncy, leans 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 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan in for steering and suspension services. 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, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, 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 explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Tiguan steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Tiguan Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan suspension system. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Tiguan’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Volkswagen Tiguan shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Tiguan’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2011 Tiguan Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Tiguan's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Volkswagen Tiguan? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Volkswagen intended.
  • When should I have my Volkswagen Tiguan power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Tiguan is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Volkswagen service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
