Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1986 Volvo 244

How Does Volvo 244 Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volvo 244's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has 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 Volvo intended them to. When your suspension is aligned to Volvo’s optimal measurements, 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 significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Bring your 1986 Volvo 244 in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Volvo recommendations. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When Should I Get Volvo 244 Wheel Alignment?

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Volvo 244 alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1986 Volvo 244: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or squealing 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 an Alignment for Volvo 244 Cost?

Volvo 244 wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, 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 your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1986 Volvo 244 wheel alignment estimate.
