Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Ford Contour’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In 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 Ford intended. 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. Three good things happen as a result: 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. When you bring in your 2000 Ford Contour, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Ford recommendations. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Ford Contour 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 2000 Ford Contour: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Contour dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
Ford Contour wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, 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 your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2000 Ford Contour wheel alignment estimate.
