An alignment involves making adjustments to your Pontiac Grand Am's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In 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 Pontiac intended. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Pontiac specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2001 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.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Pontiac Grand Am alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2001 Pontiac Grand Am: 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 noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Grand Am if your wheel alignment needs attention.
Pontiac Grand Am wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. 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. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 2001 Pontiac Grand Am wheel alignment estimate.
