2006 Nissan Altima Wheel Alignment

How Does Nissan Altima Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Nissan Altima’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. 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 Nissan intended. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Nissan specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: your car handles better, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 2006 Nissan Altima, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Nissan. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When to Get Nissan Altima Wheel Alignment

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Nissan Altima alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2006 Nissan Altima: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Altima dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Nissan Altima?

Nissan Altima 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. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, 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. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2006 Nissan Altima wheel alignment estimate.
