An alignment involves making 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 system is aligned to the measurements that Volvo specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2006 Volvo S40, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Volvo’s recommended measurements. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.
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 2006 Volvo S40: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or squealing tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your S40 if your wheel alignment needs attention.
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, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2006 Volvo S40 wheel alignment estimate.
