An alignment involves making adjustments to your Jeep Patriot's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. 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, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 2008 Jeep Patriot, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Jeep recommendations. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Jeep Patriot alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on 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 2008 Jeep Patriot: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Patriot if your wheel alignment needs attention.
Jeep Patriot wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. 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. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2008 Jeep Patriot wheel alignment estimate.
