Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1997 Volkswagen Passat

What Can I Expect with Volkswagen Passat Alignment?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Volkswagen Passat’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In an alignment service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Volkswagen intended them to. When the system is aligned to Volkswagen specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Bring your 1997 Volkswagen Passat in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Volkswagen recommendations. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

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 could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1997 Volkswagen Passat: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, 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 Passat if your wheel alignment needs attention.

Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs.
