2005 Volkswagen Passat Wheel Alignment

What Can I Expect with Volkswagen Passat Alignment?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made 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, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2005 Volkswagen Passat, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Volkswagen recommendations. 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 could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2005 Volkswagen Passat: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Passat dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
