With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Volkswagen Jetta’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. During the 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. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2002 Volkswagen Jetta, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. 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.
It’s wise to have your Volkswagen Jetta alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce 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 2002 Volkswagen Jetta: 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. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Jetta dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
On a budget? Volkswagen Jetta wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. 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 2002 Volkswagen Jetta wheel alignment estimate.
