1997 Volkswagen Golf Wheel Alignment

Why Is Volkswagen Golf Alignment Important?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Volkswagen Golf’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. When your car has 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, 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 your suspension system experiences less strain. Bring your 1997 Volkswagen Golf in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. 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.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Volkswagen Golf

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Volkswagen Golf alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1997 Volkswagen Golf: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Golf dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
