How Does Mercury Cougar Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Mercury Cougar’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. 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 Mercury intended them to. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Mercury specifies for your vehicle, 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. When you bring in your 1997 Mercury Cougar, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Mercury’s recommended measurements. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Mercury Cougar

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Mercury Cougar 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 also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1997 Mercury Cougar: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Cougar if your wheel alignment needs attention.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Mercury Cougar?

Let’s talk numbers: Mercury Cougar wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1997 Mercury Cougar wheel alignment estimate.
