An alignment involves making adjustments to your Ford Escape's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. In 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 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: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2016 Ford Escape, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. 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.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Ford Escape alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce 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 2016 Ford Escape: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, 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.
Ford Escape wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. In the long run, it could actually help you save 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. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Call a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care to get an estimate for 2016 Ford Escape wheel alignment costs today.
