An alignment involves making adjustments to your Acura MDX's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has an alignment service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as Acura intended. When the system is aligned to Acura specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 2012 Acura MDX, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Acura. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
It's a good idea to have your Acura MDX alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2012 Acura MDX: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your MDX dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
Acura MDX wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Call a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care to get an estimate for 2012 Acura MDX wheel alignment costs today.
