Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1985 Volvo 244

Why Is Volvo 244 Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Volvo 244’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Volvo. 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 Volvo specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1985 Volvo 244, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Volvo. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When Should I Get Volvo 244 Wheel Alignment?

It's a good idea to have your Volvo 244 alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1985 Volvo 244: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, 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 244 if your wheel alignment needs attention.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Volvo 244?

Let’s talk numbers: Volvo 244 wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Call a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care to get an estimate for 1985 Volvo 244 wheel alignment costs today.
