An alignment involves making adjustments to your GMC Acadia's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In 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 GMC intended. When your suspension is aligned to GMC’s optimal measurements, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. This gives you several benefits: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2014 GMC Acadia, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from GMC. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your GMC Acadia alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2014 GMC Acadia: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Acadia dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
Let’s talk numbers: GMC Acadia wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you 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.
