Wheel Alignment Service for 2012 Ford Escape

How Does Ford Escape Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Ford Escape's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In an alignment 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 suspension is aligned to Ford’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Bring your 2012 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. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Ford Escape

It's a good idea to have your Ford Escape alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2012 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. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Escape if your wheel alignment needs attention.

Costs for Ford Escape Alignment Services

On a budget? Ford Escape wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs.

Answers to Ford Escape Alignment Questions

  • Why does my 2012 Ford Escape steering feel different? Pay close attention to changes in your steering.

If you notice a change in how your car handles while driving, call on the techs at Firestone Complete Auto Care to check your Escape alignment.
  • How can I avoid knocking my Ford Escape out of alignment? Potholes and uneven roads can knock your car out of alignment, so stay aware of the road ahead and adjust your speed (or avoid these obstacles whenever it’s safely possible).
  • New tires on your Ford Escape? Did you just have new tires installed on your Escape? A wheel alignment can help them wear more evenly from the get-go.
