What Can I Expect with Geo Prizm Alignment?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Geo Prizm'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 Geo intended them to. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Geo specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 1996 Geo Prizm, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Geo. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When Should I Get Geo Prizm Wheel Alignment?

It’s wise to have your Geo Prizm alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1996 Geo Prizm: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your Prizm dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

How Much Does an Alignment for Geo Prizm Cost?

On a budget? Geo Prizm wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1996 Geo Prizm wheel alignment estimate.
