An alignment involves making adjustments to your Honda HR-V's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. 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 the system is aligned to Honda specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 2018 Honda HR-V, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Honda recommendations. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
It’s wise to have your Honda HR-V alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2018 Honda HR-V: 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. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your HR-V dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
Let’s talk numbers: Honda HR-V wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly 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 get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 2018 Honda HR-V wheel alignment estimate.
