Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1988 Audi 5000

How Does Audi 5000 Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Audi 5000’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. When your car has an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Audi. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When the system is aligned to Audi specifications, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Bring your 1988 Audi 5000 in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Audi’s recommended measurements. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When to Get Audi 5000 Wheel Alignment

It’s wise to have your Audi 5000 alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1988 Audi 5000: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your 5000 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

How Much Does an Alignment for Audi 5000 Cost?

Audi 5000 wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 1988 Audi 5000 wheel alignment estimate.
