How Does Buick Encore Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Buick Encore’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. 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 Buick intended. When the system is aligned to Buick specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 2016 Buick Encore, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Buick’s recommended measurements. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When Should I Get Buick Encore Wheel Alignment?

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Buick Encore alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease 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 2016 Buick Encore: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, 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 Encore dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
