Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2011 Volvo S40

Why Is Volvo S40 Alignment Important?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made 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 system is aligned to the measurements that Volvo specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Bring your 2011 Volvo S40 in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Volvo recommendations. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

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 over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2011 Volvo S40: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your S40 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

How Much Does an Alignment for Volvo S40 Cost?

Volvo S40 wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your tires. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2011 Volvo S40 wheel alignment estimate.
