Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2004 Volvo S40

How Does Volvo S40 Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Volvo S40’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. In 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 the system is aligned to Volvo specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 2004 Volvo S40, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Volvo recommendations. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When Should I Get Volvo S40 Wheel Alignment?

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Volvo S40 alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2004 Volvo S40: 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 noticeable squealing noises from your 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.
