With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Ford Escape’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. 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 the system is aligned to Ford specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Bring your 2006 Ford Escape in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. 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.
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 may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2006 Ford Escape: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Escape if your wheel alignment needs attention.
Ford Escape 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. 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 2006 Ford Escape wheel alignment costs today.
