Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2011 Audi Q5

How Does Audi Q5 Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Audi Q5’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your 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, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2011 Audi Q5, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Audi. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When Should I Get Audi Q5 Wheel Alignment?

It's a good idea to have your Audi Q5 alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce 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 2011 Audi Q5: 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 noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Q5 if your wheel alignment needs attention.

How Much Does an Alignment for Audi Q5 Cost?

On a budget? Audi Q5 wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Call a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care to get an estimate for 2011 Audi Q5 wheel alignment costs today.
