How Does Volkswagen Phaeton Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volkswagen Phaeton'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 suspension is aligned to Volkswagen’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2005 Volkswagen Phaeton, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Volkswagen. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Volkswagen Phaeton

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Volkswagen Phaeton alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce 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 Phaeton: 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 tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Phaeton dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
