Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Volkswagen Jetta’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has an alignment service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as Volkswagen intended. When your suspension is aligned to Volkswagen’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 1996 Volkswagen Jetta, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Volkswagen’s recommended measurements. 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 Jetta alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1996 Volkswagen Jetta: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or squealing tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Jetta if your wheel alignment needs attention.
On a budget? Volkswagen Jetta wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 1996 Volkswagen Jetta wheel alignment estimate.
