An alignment involves making adjustments to your Lincoln MKX's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. 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 Lincoln intended. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Lincoln specifies for your vehicle, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2012 Lincoln MKX, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Lincoln. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Lincoln MKX alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2012 Lincoln MKX: pulling to the left or right, 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 MKX if your wheel alignment needs attention.
Lincoln MKX 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 get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of 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 2012 Lincoln MKX wheel alignment estimate.
