When does Volkswagen recommend steering and suspension service for 2012 Volkswagen Tiguans?

Is It Time For 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Tiguan bounces, drifts 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 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Tiguan suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Volkswagen Tiguan suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Tiguan Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 Tiguan’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Volkswagen Tiguan shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 Volkswagen 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.

2012 Tiguan Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volkswagen's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your 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 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 your suspension perform smoothly.
