Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2013 Volkswagen Golf

Why Is Volkswagen Golf Alignment Important?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Volkswagen Golf’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. 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 suspension is aligned to Volkswagen’s optimal measurements, 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 there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2013 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 also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When to Get Volkswagen Golf Wheel Alignment

It's a good idea to have your Volkswagen Golf alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. 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 2013 Volkswagen Golf: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, 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.

Let’s talk numbers: Volkswagen Golf wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your tires. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2013 Volkswagen Golf wheel alignment estimate.
