What Can I Expect with Mazda Protege Alignment?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Mazda Protege's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Mazda. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When your suspension is aligned to Mazda’s optimal measurements, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Bring your 1996 Mazda Protege in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Mazda recommendations. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Mazda Protege

It’s wise to have your Mazda Protege alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your 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 1996 Mazda Protege: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your Protege dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
