2012 Volkswagen Golf R Wheel Alignment

How Does Volkswagen Golf R Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volkswagen Golf R'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 your system is aligned to the measurements that Volkswagen specifies for your vehicle, 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 there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 2012 Volkswagen Golf R, we’ll perform an alignment check first. 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.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Volkswagen Golf R

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Volkswagen Golf R 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 also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2012 Volkswagen Golf R: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Golf R dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
