2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Wheel Alignment

Why Is Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Alignment Important?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has 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, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen, 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. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Golf SportWagen if your wheel alignment needs attention.
