Shock and Strut replacement

Do Not Overlook the Shocks and Struts of Your Volkswagen, Get Them Replaced When Needed in Tucson, AZ

The terms "shocks" and "struts" refer to two important components of your Volkswagen's transmission and help to keep the vehicle balanced while minimizing the damage that may be accumulated on your suspension due to uneven pavement. When the suspension starts to deteriorate, it is essential to schedule a maintenance appointment here at Larry H. Miller Volkswagen Tucson. Our Volkswagen technicians would likely agree that the shocks and struts of your Volkswagen must be replaced once every 50,000 miles. However, if you are someone with a more active commute or someone who travels through unpredictable road terrain, you may want to consider replacing the shocks and struts of your Volkswagen sooner.

Know the Signs of Shock Replacement

If you have owned your Volkswagen Tiguan, Jetta, or Passat for up to 50,000 miles, or you simply think it might be time for suspension repair, be aware of the many telltale signs that the shocks and struts of your Volkswagen may require replacement:

  • Tire shaking: if you feel the tires on your Volkswagen shimmy, vibrate, or shake (especially after hitting a bump), it is a good sign that your suspension may require attention.
  • Suspension bottoming: When the shocks and struts on your vehicle go, your suspension may find itself sinking lower to the ground than beforehand and might not travel back up. If this happens, immediate repair is needed to prevent undercarriage damage.
  • Uneven driving: If you detect a change in ride quality, such as a bouncy ride overall or rocking/swaying during a strong wind, it is a sign of shock and strut replacement.
  • Fluid leaking: If the shocks and struts in the suspension start to break down, you may notice a leaking of transmission or other fluid coming from the wheels.
