Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Volkswagen GTI’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has 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 your system is aligned to the measurements that Volkswagen specifies for your vehicle, all of your tires experience equal pressure. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2019 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 also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.
It’s wise to have your Volkswagen GTI alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your 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 2019 Volkswagen GTI: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, 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.
On a budget? Volkswagen GTI wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. 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 a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care to get an estimate for 2019 Volkswagen GTI wheel alignment costs today.
