With an alignment service, adjustments are made 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 four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2020 Volkswagen GTI, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Volkswagen recommendations. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.
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 2020 Volkswagen GTI: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your GTI dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
On a budget? Volkswagen GTI wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs.
