Wheel Alignment Service for 1998 Volkswagen Beetle

What Can I Expect with Volkswagen Beetle Alignment?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volkswagen Beetle's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In an alignment 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 Volkswagen intended. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Volkswagen specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Bring your 1998 Volkswagen Beetle in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Volkswagen’s recommended measurements. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Volkswagen Beetle

It’s wise to have your Volkswagen Beetle alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce 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 1998 Volkswagen Beetle: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Beetle dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

How Much Does an Alignment for Volkswagen Beetle Cost?

On a budget? Volkswagen Beetle wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Call a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care to get an estimate for 1998 Volkswagen Beetle wheel alignment costs today.
