Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1996 Honda Accord

What Can I Expect with Honda Accord Alignment?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Honda Accord's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. 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 Honda intended. When the system is aligned to Honda specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1996 Honda Accord, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Honda’s recommended measurements. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When Should I Get Honda Accord Wheel Alignment?

It's a good idea to have your Honda Accord alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce 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 Honda Accord: 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 tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your Accord dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

How Much Does an Alignment for Honda Accord Cost?

On a budget? Honda Accord wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, so you can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your tires. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 1996 Honda Accord wheel alignment estimate.
