Wheel alignment is an important service for optimum fuel efficiency and proper handling of the vehicle. This service can also help maximize the life and performance of the tires. Wheel alignment service is only required if the wheels are misaligned, so the key is to have regular inspection service to determine if alignment service is required.
With our state-of-the-art equipment at Sheehy Volkswagen of Hagerstown, we can determine whether the suspension of your vehicle is misaligned. The equipment used for this service uses computerized technology to measure the camber, toe, and caster angles of the suspension. If these angles do not match VW factory specifications, the wheels are not properly aligned. Our technicians might also want to perform a road test of the vehicle and a physical inspection of the wheels to complete the inspection service.
The most reliable method to determine wheel misalignment is through a wheel alignment inspection service by factory-trained and certified technicians at Sheehy Volkswagen of Hagerstown. However, it also helps to watch out for signs of wheel misalignment so you can bring your car to our service center as soon as possible. The most common indicators of wheels that are not properly aligned include a crooked steering wheel, pulling of the car to one side, or uneven tread wear of the tires.
Certain types of vehicle configurations only require the front two wheels to be aligned as the rear wheels are fixed in place. If your vehicle is front-wheel or rear-wheel drive only, this might be the service your vehicle requires.
Vehicles that have an all-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive configuration typically allow for angle adjustments on all four wheels. If you're experiencing a pull to one side, or a less smooth driving experience, ask your service advisor about having a four-wheel alignment performed.
