How Does Chevrolet Captiva Sport Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Chevrolet Captiva Sport’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 Chevrolet intended. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Chevrolet specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Chevrolet. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When to Get Chevrolet Captiva Sport Wheel Alignment

It’s wise to have your Chevrolet Captiva Sport alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Captiva Sport dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
