An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volkswagen Golf's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. During the 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. This gives you several benefits: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 2018 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.
It's a good idea to have your Volkswagen Golf alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. 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 2018 Volkswagen Golf: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Golf if your wheel alignment needs attention.
Volkswagen Golf wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the years, it could actually save you 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 2018 Volkswagen Golf wheel alignment estimate.
