Alignment services involve precise 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, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 2017 Volkswagen GTI, we’ll perform an alignment check first. 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.
It's a good idea to have your Volkswagen GTI alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce 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 GTI: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your GTI dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
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. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2017 Volkswagen GTI wheel alignment estimate.
