Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2016 Audi A3

Why Is Audi A3 Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Audi A3's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In 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 Audi intended. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Audi specifies for your vehicle, all of your tires experience equal pressure. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2016 Audi A3, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Audi. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Audi A3

It's a good idea to have your Audi A3 alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on 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 2016 Audi A3: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your A3 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Audi A3?

On a budget? Audi A3 wheel alignment might be more affordable than you 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 can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your 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 2016 Audi A3 wheel alignment estimate.
