Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1997 Pontiac Grand Am

Why Is Pontiac Grand Am Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Pontiac Grand Am’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has 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 Pontiac intended them to. When your suspension is aligned to Pontiac’s optimal measurements, all of your tires experience equal pressure. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1997 Pontiac Grand Am, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Pontiac. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When Should I Get Pontiac Grand Am Wheel Alignment?

It's a good idea to have your Pontiac Grand Am alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. 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 Pontiac Grand Am: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or squealing tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Grand Am if your wheel alignment needs attention.
