VW Four-Wheel Alignment Service in Lake Park, FL
A Volkswagen four-wheel alignment, also known as a front-end and rear-end alignment, means that all of the wheels are pointing in different directions. A four-wheel alignment in Lake Park is a frequently overlooked yet critical adjustment to ensure your vehicle is steering straight as you are driving down the road. Your vehicle’s ability to operate properly depends on the combination of acceleration, steering, power, and braking, all of which rely on proper alignment. One of the most important maintenance steps you can take to ensure your vehicle is safe is to have a 4-wheel alignment as soon as you suspect a potential problem.
Our Four-Wheel Alignment Recommendations
Schumacher Volkswagen of North Palm Beach recommends that you have a Volkswagen four-wheel alignment every 12-months. We also recommend that you have the tires on your Volkswagen checked routinely, and if you replace the tires, an alignment is crucial. If you hit a curb, a pothole, or are involved in an accident, it’s also recommended that you have the vehicle inspected to make sure the jolt didn’t cause a misalignment. When it comes to mechanical services, including a four-wheel alignment, it’s important for your Volkswagen to have all services done by technicians certified and experienced in the mechanical aspects of a Volkswagen.
There are several signs that may indicate it’s time to take your vehicle in for a four-wheel alignment, including:
Uneven tire wear – This doesn’t mean normal wear on the tires, and it means that usually one, may two of the tires are wearing quicker than the other tires or that they are wearing unusually. For instance, the inside shoulder of a tire is wearing out much quicker than the rest of the tire.
Vehicle pulling to one side – Your vehicle should always drive in a straight line when the wheels are straight, so if your vehicle is pulling to one side while driving down an even, flat road, it means there is a problem with the alignment.
Issues with the steering wheel – Your steering wheel should be level and flat while your vehicle is traveling straight. If not, you need an alignment. Another common sign is if you continually have vibrations through the steering wheel.
If it’s time for your vehicle to have an alignment, contact Schumacher Volkswagen of North Palm Beach to schedule your service. We have several locations in the Lake Park, FL area, including North Palm Beach, Jupiter, Riviera Beach, and Abacoa.
