An alignment involves making adjustments to your Honda Civic's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. 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 Honda intended. When your suspension is aligned to Honda’s optimal measurements, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 2017 Honda Civic, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Honda. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.
It’s wise to have your Honda Civic alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly 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 may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2017 Honda Civic: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Civic if your wheel alignment needs attention.
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. 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.
