Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1998 Honda Civic

How Does Honda Civic Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Honda Civic'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 Honda intended. When the system is aligned to Honda specifications, 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. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1998 Honda Civic, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Honda. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When Should I Get Honda Civic Wheel Alignment?

It's a good idea to have your Honda Civic alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1998 Honda Civic: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Civic dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Honda Civic?

On a budget? Honda Civic wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 1998 Honda Civic wheel alignment estimate.
