Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2012 Volvo S60

How Does Volvo S60 Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Volvo S60’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. During the 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, all of your tires experience equal pressure. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Bring your 2012 Volvo S60 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. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Volvo S60

It's a good idea to have your Volvo S60 alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. 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 need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2012 Volvo S60: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your S60 if your wheel alignment needs attention.

How Much Does an Alignment for Volvo S60 Cost?

Volvo S60 wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. 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. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2012 Volvo S60 wheel alignment estimate.
