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. In 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 Mazda intended. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Mazda specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Bring your 2001 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. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Mazda Protege

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Mazda Protege alignment checked about 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 might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2001 Mazda Protege: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Protege dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Mazda Protege?

Mazda Protege wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might 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, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 2001 Mazda Protege wheel alignment estimate.
