Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2006 Audi A3

Why Is Audi A3 Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Audi A3’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. In an alignment service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Audi intended them to. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Audi specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2006 Audi A3, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Audi’s recommended measurements. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When Should I Get Audi A3 Wheel Alignment?

It's a good idea to have your Audi A3 alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2006 Audi A3: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your A3 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

How Much Does an Alignment for Audi A3 Cost?

On a budget? Audi A3 wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. 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. 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 2006 Audi A3 wheel alignment estimate.
