2018 Volkswagen Jetta Wheel Alignment

How Does Volkswagen Jetta Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volkswagen Jetta's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Volkswagen. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Volkswagen specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2018 Volkswagen Jetta, 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.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Volkswagen Jetta

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 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 2018 Volkswagen Jetta: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Jetta if your wheel alignment needs attention.

Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 2018 Volkswagen Jetta wheel alignment estimate.
