Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2005 Volkswagen Beetle

Why Is Volkswagen Beetle Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Volkswagen Beetle’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has 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 your suspension is aligned to Volkswagen’s optimal measurements, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 2005 Volkswagen Beetle, 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.

When to Get Volkswagen Beetle Wheel Alignment

It's a good idea to have your Volkswagen Beetle alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. 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 may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2005 Volkswagen Beetle: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Beetle dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
