How Does Mercury Mountaineer Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Mercury Mountaineer's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. During the service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Mercury. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Mercury specifies for your vehicle, all of your tires experience equal pressure. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 1998 Mercury Mountaineer, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Mercury recommendations. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Mercury Mountaineer

It's a good idea to have your Mercury Mountaineer alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. 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 1998 Mercury Mountaineer: 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 tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your Mountaineer dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

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

Let’s talk numbers: Mercury Mountaineer wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, 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 1998 Mercury Mountaineer wheel alignment estimate.
