Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1990 Volkswagen Passat

How Does Volkswagen Passat Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volkswagen Passat's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your 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 four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1990 Volkswagen Passat, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. 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.

When to Get Volkswagen Passat Wheel Alignment

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Volkswagen Passat alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1990 Volkswagen Passat: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Passat dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
