Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1988 Volvo 244

How Does Volvo 244 Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Volvo 244’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has an alignment 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 Volvo intended. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Volvo specifies for your vehicle, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: your car handles better, the lifespan of your tires increases, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 1988 Volvo 244, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Volvo. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

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. 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 may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1988 Volvo 244: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, 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 It Cost for Alignment Service on My Volvo 244?

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, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1988 Volvo 244 wheel alignment estimate.
