With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Smart Fortwo’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. In an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Smart. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Smart specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2012 Smart Fortwo, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Smart. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
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 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 2012 Smart Fortwo: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Fortwo dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
Let’s talk numbers: Smart Fortwo wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, 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 Smart Fortwo wheel alignment estimate.
