Wheel Alignment Service for 1983 Volvo 245

How Does Volvo 245 Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volvo 245's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. During the 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 the system is aligned to Volvo specifications, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Bring your 1983 Volvo 245 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.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Volvo 245

It's a good idea to have your Volvo 245 alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1983 Volvo 245: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your 245 if your wheel alignment needs attention.
