2017 Volkswagen Golf Wheel Alignment

Why Is Volkswagen Golf Alignment Important?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Volkswagen Golf’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In an alignment 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. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, 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, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Volkswagen. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When to Get Volkswagen Golf Wheel Alignment

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Volkswagen Golf alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease 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 2017 Volkswagen Golf: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or squealing 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.
