Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2012 Ford Edge

How Does Ford Edge Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Ford Edge’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has 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 suspension is aligned to Ford’s optimal measurements, all of your tires experience equal pressure. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 2012 Ford Edge, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Ford’s recommended measurements. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Ford Edge

It's a good idea to have your Ford Edge alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2012 Ford Edge: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Edge dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
