Absorber Set


Risk Warning

The main risk is that having a faulty Absorber Set in a Volkswagen car could lead to reduced handling and braking performance, which in turn could increase the chances of an accident due to reduced vehicle stability. The Absorber Set is responsible for controlling the movements of the car’s suspension, and when it’s not working correctly the car may shake, roll and dive during cornering, sudden braking and rapid acceleration. This instability can make the vehicle difficult to control and can lead to potentially dangerous situations. In addition, having a faulty Absorber Set increases wear and tear on the car’s tires and brakes, leading to further safety issues.
