An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volkswagen Atlas'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 Volkswagen. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When the system is aligned to Volkswagen specifications, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2020 Volkswagen Atlas, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Volkswagen. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
It’s wise to have your Volkswagen Atlas alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce 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 2020 Volkswagen Atlas: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Atlas dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
Let’s talk numbers: Volkswagen Atlas 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. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 2020 Volkswagen Atlas wheel alignment estimate.
