Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2006 Chevrolet Colorado

Why Is Chevrolet Colorado Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Chevrolet Colorado's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the 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 Chevrolet intended them to. When the system is aligned to Chevrolet specifications, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2006 Chevrolet Colorado, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. 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.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Chevrolet Colorado

It's a good idea to have your Chevrolet Colorado alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even a small misalignment can decrease 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 2006 Chevrolet Colorado: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, 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 Colorado if your wheel alignment needs attention.
