Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2004 Saab 9-5

Why Is Saab 9-5 Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Saab 9-5's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. 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 Saab intended. When the system is aligned to Saab specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: your car handles better, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2004 Saab 9-5, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Saab recommendations. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Saab 9-5

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Saab 9-5 alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2004 Saab 9-5: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your 9-5 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
