When you need your 1998 Ford Escort alignment checked, trust Firestone Complete Auto Care. Schedule your alignment appointment today.
With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Ford Escort’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has an alignment 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 your system is aligned to the measurements that Ford specifies for your vehicle, all of your tires experience equal pressure. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1998 Ford Escort, 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.
It's a good idea to have your Ford Escort alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. 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 1998 Ford Escort: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Escort dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
Let’s talk numbers: Ford Escort wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. 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. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1998 Ford Escort wheel alignment estimate.
