Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2003 Ford Escort

Why Is Ford Escort Alignment Important?

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 the system is aligned to Ford specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Bring your 2003 Ford Escort 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 also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When to Get Ford Escort Wheel Alignment

It’s wise to have your Ford Escort alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2003 Ford Escort: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Escort dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

Costs for Ford Escort Alignment Services

Ford Escort 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, so you can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2003 Ford Escort wheel alignment estimate.
