Making sure your car is properly aligned is key to having not only a smooth ride but to prevent unnecessary wear and tear on your tires and steering system. Improper alignment disrupts the suspension and can cause more problems and ultimately be more expensive if left unattended.

Signs You Need an Alignment in Mesa, AZ

Steering

There are many tell tale signs that it’s time for your vehicle to be aligned. One of the most common signs is if your vehicle pulls to one side or the other. To test this, you should never take your hands completely off the steering wheel. That is very dangerous and a misconception, as all roads have some degree of crowning or sloping. Instead, with your hands loosely on the wheel, the car should continue driving straight ahead. Similarly, if you are driving down a flat road, your steering wheel should stay close to centered as well as feel tight. If your vehicle’s steering wheel feels loose or unstable, it may need aligning.

Tires

Another sign of a much needed alignment would be abnormal or uneven tire wear. Obvious to a mechanic but not always to the driver, tire wear can be spotted by uneven tread wear or low tire pressure. If you are unsure how to check for or spot this on your own, feel free to bring your car in for a quick inspection or it’s always a good idea to have your tires rotated regularly, as your mechanic would notice any issues at that time.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the alignment of your vehicle, please feel free to contact us or stop by and one of our specialists can do a thorough inspection and assess the condition of your vehicle.
