How Does Scion tC Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Scion tC's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. During the 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 Scion intended them to. When your suspension is aligned to Scion’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, 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 2008 Scion tC, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Scion recommendations. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Scion tC

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Scion tC alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2008 Scion tC: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your tC if your wheel alignment needs attention.
