How Does Geo Metro Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Geo Metro’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. During the 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 Geo intended. When your suspension is aligned to Geo’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 1989 Geo Metro, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Geo’s recommended measurements. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When to Get Geo Metro Wheel Alignment

It’s wise to have your Geo Metro alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1989 Geo Metro: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Metro dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Geo Metro?

On a budget? Geo Metro wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, 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. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 1989 Geo Metro wheel alignment estimate.

Questions About Geo Metro Alignment

  • Why does my 1989 Geo Metro steering feel different? Don't wait for an 'alignment light' on your dashboard. There isn't one. Getting a professional alignment check is the easiest way to know if your Metro alignment is off.
