2016 Volkswagen Tiguan Suspension Service & Repair

2016 Volkswagen Tiguan Maintenance Schedule

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

Does Your 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Tiguan feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan’s suspension. 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 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 factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn 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. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Tiguan's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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 Tiguan? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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.
  • When does Volkswagen Tiguan 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Volkswagen service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
