Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Volvo S40’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. During the 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 suspension is aligned to Volvo’s optimal measurements, all of your tires experience equal pressure. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2003 Volvo S40, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Volvo recommendations. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.
It’s wise to have your Volvo S40 alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2003 Volvo S40: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your S40 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
On a budget? Volvo S40 wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 2003 Volvo S40 wheel alignment estimate.
