What Can I Expect with Volkswagen Cabriolet Alignment?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Volkswagen Cabriolet’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. 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, all of your tires experience equal pressure. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1986 Volkswagen Cabriolet, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Volkswagen recommendations. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Volkswagen Cabriolet

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Volkswagen Cabriolet alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1986 Volkswagen Cabriolet: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Cabriolet dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
