Why Is Buick Riviera Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Buick Riviera's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. During the 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. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1988 Buick Riviera, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Buick. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When Should I Get Buick Riviera Wheel Alignment?

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Buick Riviera 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 also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1988 Buick Riviera: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Riviera dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

How Much Does an Alignment for Buick Riviera Cost?

Buick Riviera 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, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Call a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care to get an estimate for 1988 Buick Riviera wheel alignment costs today.
