Why Is Scion tC Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Scion tC's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. In 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 Scion intended them to. When the system is aligned to Scion specifications, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 2016 Scion tC, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Scion recommendations. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When Should I Get Scion tC Wheel Alignment?

It's a good idea to have your Scion tC alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2016 Scion tC: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your tC if your wheel alignment needs attention.

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

Scion tC wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 2016 Scion tC wheel alignment estimate.

Questions About Scion tC Alignment

  • Why does my 2016 Scion tC steering feel different? Don't wait for an 'alignment light' on your dashboard. There isn't one. Getting a professional alignment check is the easiest way to know if your tC alignment is off.
  • How can I avoid knocking my Scion tC out of alignment? Potholes and uneven roads can knock your car out of alignment, so stay aware of the road ahead and adjust your speed (or avoid these obstacles whenever it’s safely possible).
  • I just bought new Scion tC tires. Do I need an alignment? Protect your investment with a wheel alignment. No one wants to replace tires sooner than necessary. Help your new tires wear evenly from day one, with a wheel alignment.
  • How often does your tC need a wheel alignment? It’s usually suggested you check your alignment about every 6,000 miles or 6 months (whichever occurs first). Still, you should reference your tC owner’s manual for Scion's recommended interval.
  • Does getting new tC tires mean you need an alignment? It’s likely not a requirement to get an alignment when you install new tires on your tC, but it's a smart idea to do so anyway. An alignment can help ensure even tire wear, smooth handling, and better fuel efficiency.

  • Will an alignment fix a crooked tC steering wheel? A wheel alignment is usually what it takes to fix a crooked tC steering wheel. When the wheels are not properly aligned, they can cause the car to pull to one side, which can also cause the steering wheel to become crooked while you're driving straight down the road.
