Does Your Vehicle Feel Like It’s Driving You?
It’s a common feeling we’ve all felt at least once behind the wheel of a vehicle. It is a moment where you realize you may not be in complete control. A moment where your arms realize it takes a bit more effort to stay straight on the road. That “pulling to one side” sensation can catch people off-guard but also bring up worries. What exactly is causing the tugging feeling? Well, it’s your vehicle’s wheel alignment, which means you’ll need an ASE-certified technician to help recalibrate your vehicle, so it is properly aligned.
What Causes A Wheel Misalignment?
This is, unequivocally, the most frequently asked question regarding wheel alignment services. How did the vehicle get like that in the first place? For most, it is simple wear and tear over time. As your tires rumble over minor potholes and blazes trails down the highway, the tires absorb a great deal of impact before reaching the frame of your car. That helps give a smooth ride to the driver and all of the vehicle’s passengers. However, the result of absorbing all of that impact is that, eventually, something will slip out of whack. Think of it in terms of someone running on a treadmill. They run every day for hours at a time, and eventually, their knees will start hurting. If left untreated, their knees will get worse, and without proper maintenance on a careful doctor’s watch, the knee pain can turn into a knee disaster. It’s the same thing with your wheel alignment. If it isn’t under the careful eye of your certified mechanic, the wheel misalignment–like the bad knees–can turn into things like suspension and steering disasters. Or, uneven wear and tear on your tires reduce their life and effectiveness on the road. It can even lead to prematurely wearing down your vehicle’s ball joints, and those costs add up quickly. Never fear, however. Our five-year/60,000-mile warranty guarantees that our alignment services will get you back on the road free of tugging. At the same time, you have a safety net to catch you in case something else goes wrong.
