An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volkswagen GTI's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has 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. Bring your 2013 Volkswagen GTI in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Volkswagen. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Volkswagen GTI alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2013 Volkswagen GTI: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, 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 GTI if your wheel alignment needs attention.
Volkswagen GTI wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the years, it could actually save you 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. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2013 Volkswagen GTI wheel alignment estimate.
