Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2009 Volkswagen Beetle

Why Is Volkswagen Beetle Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Volkswagen Beetle’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In an alignment service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Volkswagen intended them to. When the system is aligned to Volkswagen specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2009 Volkswagen Beetle, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Volkswagen recommendations. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When to Get Volkswagen Beetle Wheel Alignment

It’s wise to have your Volkswagen Beetle alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2009 Volkswagen Beetle: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, 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 It Cost for Alignment Service on My Volkswagen Beetle?

Let’s talk numbers: Volkswagen Beetle wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs.
