Symptoms of Incorrect Alignment
Have your vehicle checked if you notice:
Excessive or uneven tire wear
The vehicle pulls to the left or right
Feeling of looseness or wandering
Steering wheel vibration or shimmy
Steering wheel is not centered when the vehicle is moving straight ahead
The Importance of Total Alignment
Does your car pull to one side? Do you constantly have to move the steering wheel to keep your car traveling straight ahead?
Many handling problems can be corrected by Total Alignment service. With all the vehicle components aligned properly, road shock is more efficiently absorbed for a smoother ride. As a general rule, have your wheel alignment checked every 10,000 miles or at least once a year.
Reduced Tire Wear: Improper alignment is a major cause of premature tire wear. Over the years, a properly aligned vehicle can add thousands of miles to tire life. Most tires are replaced prematurely due to adverse wear.
Better Gas Mileage: Gas mileage increases as rolling resistance decreases. Total Alignment sets all four wheels parallel, which along with proper inflation, minimizes rolling resistance.
Safer Driving: A suspension system inspection is part of the alignment procedure. This allows worn parts to be detected before they cause costly problems.
