Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2011 Ford Escape

How Does Ford Escape Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Ford Escape’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. During the 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 the system is aligned to Ford specifications, 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 your suspension system experiences less strain. Bring your 2011 Ford Escape in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Ford’s recommended measurements. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Ford Escape

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 cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2011 Ford Escape: 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 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.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Ford Escape?

Ford Escape wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, 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 2011 Ford Escape wheel alignment estimate.
