An alignment involves making adjustments to your Jeep Compass's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your 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 Jeep intended. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Jeep specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2017 Jeep Compass, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Jeep recommendations. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.
It’s wise to have your Jeep Compass 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 might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2017 Jeep Compass: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Compass if your wheel alignment needs attention.
Jeep Compass wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. 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. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 2017 Jeep Compass wheel alignment estimate.
