An alignment involves making adjustments to your Subaru Crosstrek's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. During the service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as Subaru intended. When the system is aligned to Subaru specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Subaru. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.
It’s wise to have your Subaru Crosstrek alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. 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 2018 Subaru Crosstrek: 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 noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Crosstrek if your wheel alignment needs attention.
On a budget? Subaru Crosstrek wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs.
