An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volkswagen GTI's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. In 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 the system is aligned to Volkswagen specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2011 Volkswagen GTI, we’ll perform an alignment check first. 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.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Volkswagen GTI alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2011 Volkswagen GTI: pulling to the left or right, 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 GTI if your wheel alignment needs attention.
Let’s talk numbers: Volkswagen GTI 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. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2011 Volkswagen GTI wheel alignment estimate.
