An alignment involves making adjustments to your Lincoln MKT's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. When your car has an alignment 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 Lincoln intended. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Lincoln specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 2012 Lincoln MKT, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Lincoln. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Lincoln MKT alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce 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 2012 Lincoln MKT: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or squealing tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your MKT if your wheel alignment needs attention.
Let’s talk numbers: Lincoln MKT wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. 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. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Call a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care to get an estimate for 2012 Lincoln MKT wheel alignment costs today.
