2018 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, 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 your suspension is aligned to Volkswagen’s optimal measurements, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2018 Volkswagen Golf R, we’ll perform an alignment check first. 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 Golf R

It's a good idea to have your Volkswagen Golf R alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2018 Volkswagen Golf R: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your Golf R dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Volkswagen Golf R?

Let’s talk numbers: Volkswagen Golf R wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, 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.
