Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2002 Volvo S40

How Does Volvo S40 Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Volvo S40’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the 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 suspension is aligned to Volvo’s optimal measurements, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2002 Volvo S40, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Volvo’s recommended measurements. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Volvo S40

It’s wise to have your Volvo S40 alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. 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 also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2002 Volvo S40: 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. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your S40 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
