Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Why Is Jeep Grand Cherokee Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Jeep Grand Cherokee's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has an alignment service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Jeep intended them to. When the system is aligned to Jeep specifications, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. 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. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Jeep recommendations. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Jeep Grand Cherokee

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Jeep Grand Cherokee 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 may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee: 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 Grand Cherokee if your wheel alignment needs attention.
