An alignment involves making adjustments to your Ford Escape's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. During the service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Ford. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. 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: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2002 Ford Escape, 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.
It’s wise to have your Ford Escape alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2002 Ford Escape: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Escape dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
Let’s talk numbers: Ford Escape wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, so you can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your tires. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Call a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care to get an estimate for 2002 Ford Escape wheel alignment costs today.
