An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volkswagen Golf's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In an alignment 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 your system is aligned to the measurements that Volkswagen specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1996 Volkswagen Golf, 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.
It’s wise to have your Volkswagen Golf alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1996 Volkswagen Golf: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Golf dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
On a budget? Volkswagen Golf wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1996 Volkswagen Golf wheel alignment estimate.
