An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volvo S60's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. 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 the system is aligned to Volvo specifications, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. 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. When you bring in your 2005 Volvo S60, we’ll perform an alignment check first. 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 S60 alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. 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 S60: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your S60 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
Volvo S60 wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, 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 2005 Volvo S60 wheel alignment estimate.
