What Can I Expect with Scion iQ Alignment?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Scion iQ's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. During the service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Scion. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When your suspension is aligned to Scion’s optimal measurements, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Bring your 2012 Scion iQ in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Scion’s recommended measurements. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When Should I Get Scion iQ Wheel Alignment?

It's a good idea to have your Scion iQ alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2012 Scion iQ: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your iQ dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Scion iQ?

Scion iQ wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, so you can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your tires. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2012 Scion iQ wheel alignment estimate.
