A car without a proper wheel alignment will eat up fuel as well as prematurely waste its tires. This reduces the vehicle’s control and performance on the road. Both tire life and overall energy consumption are drained dramatically when the wheel alignment is off. With unaligned wheels, the vehicle is essentially fighting itself while moving down the road. An alignment service makes sure all four wheels are in sync with each other and improves steering control. Over time, the angles of this alignment can start to change, which is why an alignment check should be done at least every 6,000 miles or six months.
Alignment services at Hagerstown Honda are tested with a computerized approach. This includes the four main parts of wheel adjustment: the camber, caster, toe, and the thrust angle of the wheels. Because the computer can identify misalignments far better than a human eye and hand tools can, the results produce a far better adjustment output that last longer.
With most two-wheel alignment and four-wheel alignment services, a certified mechanic will go through your vehicle and test all the wheels’ current position. The various alignment aspects will be checked and adjusted to factory specifications. In addition, your steering and suspension will be checked as well. If your tires are healthy or in okay status, they will be rotated to reduce wear as much as possible and extend their utility life. The air pressure will also be checked and topped off. Everything will be reported, and you will get all the measurements and metrics to know what’s happening with your car. Finally, the mechanic will road test the car for a final check before returning it to the service counter for your pickup.
