An alignment involves making adjustments to your Honda Civic's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. During the service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Honda. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When your suspension is aligned to Honda’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get 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. When you bring in your 2018 Honda Civic, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Honda. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Honda Civic alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. 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 might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2018 Honda Civic: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Civic dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
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. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2018 Honda Civic wheel alignment estimate.
