Why Is Mercury Monterey Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Mercury Monterey's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. When your car has 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 Mercury intended. When the system is aligned to Mercury specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 2004 Mercury Monterey, 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 make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When to Get Mercury Monterey Wheel Alignment

It’s wise to have your Mercury Monterey alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2004 Mercury Monterey: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Monterey dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
