Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet

Why Is Volkswagen Cabriolet Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volkswagen Cabriolet's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. During the 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 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 ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Volkswagen’s recommended measurements. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When to Get Volkswagen Cabriolet Wheel Alignment

It’s wise to have your Volkswagen Cabriolet 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 might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Cabriolet dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
