Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1997 Volkswagen Jetta

How Does Volkswagen Jetta Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Volkswagen Jetta’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In 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 system is aligned to the measurements that Volkswagen specifies for your vehicle, all of your tires experience equal pressure. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1997 Volkswagen Jetta, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Volkswagen. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When to Get Volkswagen Jetta Wheel Alignment

It’s wise to have your Volkswagen Jetta 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 may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1997 Volkswagen Jetta: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Jetta dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

How Much Does an Alignment for Volkswagen Jetta Cost?

Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, so you can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your tires. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1997 Volkswagen Jetta wheel alignment estimate.
