How Does Ford Contour Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Ford Contour’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 Ford intended them to. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Ford specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, 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 1999 Ford Contour, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Ford. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When Should I Get Ford Contour Wheel Alignment?

It’s wise to have your Ford Contour alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. 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 1999 Ford Contour: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Contour if your wheel alignment needs attention.

How Much Does an Alignment for Ford Contour Cost?

Ford Contour wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your tires.
