2005 Volvo S40 Wheel Alignment

How Does Volvo S40 Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Volvo S40’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In an alignment 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 ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Bring your 2005 Volvo S40 in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Volvo’s recommended measurements. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Volvo S40

It's a good idea to have your Volvo S40 alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2005 Volvo S40: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your S40 if your wheel alignment needs attention.
