Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2011 Lincoln MKX

How Does Lincoln MKX Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Lincoln MKX's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In 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 Lincoln intended them to. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Lincoln specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 2011 Lincoln MKX, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Lincoln 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 Lincoln MKX

It's a good idea to have your Lincoln MKX alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2011 Lincoln MKX: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your MKX dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

Lincoln MKX wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money.
