With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Volkswagen Golf’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. During the service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Volkswagen. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Volkswagen specifies for your vehicle, all of your tires experience equal pressure. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2011 Volkswagen Golf, 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.
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 may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2011 Volkswagen Golf: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Golf if your wheel alignment needs attention.
On a budget? Volkswagen Golf wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, 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.
