An alignment involves making adjustments to your Smart Fortwo's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has 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 Smart intended them to. When the system is aligned to Smart specifications, 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 your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 2008 Smart Fortwo, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Smart. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Smart Fortwo alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2008 Smart Fortwo: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your Fortwo dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
Let’s talk numbers: Smart Fortwo wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you 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, 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. Call a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care to get an estimate for 2008 Smart Fortwo wheel alignment costs today.
