Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1998 Mazda Protege

How Does Mazda Protege Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Mazda Protege’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. During the 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 Mazda intended them to. When your suspension is aligned to Mazda’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Bring your 1998 Mazda Protege in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Mazda. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When to Get Mazda Protege Wheel Alignment

It's a good idea to have your Mazda Protege alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1998 Mazda Protege: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Protege dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
