2018 Volkswagen GTI Wheel Alignment

Why Is Volkswagen GTI Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Volkswagen GTI’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In an alignment service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Volkswagen intended them to. When the system is aligned to Volkswagen specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Bring your 2018 Volkswagen GTI in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Volkswagen’s recommended measurements. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Volkswagen GTI

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 over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2018 Volkswagen GTI: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that sits crooked while 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. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2018 Volkswagen GTI wheel alignment estimate.
