Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2011 Volvo S60

What Can I Expect with Volvo S60 Alignment?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made 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 your suspension is aligned to Volvo’s optimal measurements, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 2011 Volvo S60, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Volvo. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When to Get Volvo S60 Wheel Alignment

It’s wise to have your Volvo S60 alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2011 Volvo S60: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your S60 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

Costs for Volvo S60 Alignment Services

Volvo S60 wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the years, it could actually save you 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 2011 Volvo S60 wheel alignment estimate.
