2001 Ford Escort Wheel Alignment

How Does Ford Escort Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Ford Escort’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has 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 your system is aligned to the measurements that Ford specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2001 Ford Escort, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Ford recommendations. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When Should I Get Ford Escort Wheel Alignment?

It's a good idea to have your Ford Escort alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. 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 2001 Ford Escort: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Escort if your wheel alignment needs attention.

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

Let’s talk numbers: Ford Escort wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you 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. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 2001 Ford Escort wheel alignment estimate.
