What to Understand About Volkswagen Wheel Alignment

Vehicle alignment refers to the alignment of the wheels in relation to each other, the vehicle frame and body, and most importantly, the angle at which they maintain contact with the road. The alignment assures the best balance of vehicle performance regarding sheer power, handling, and fuel efficiency. Factory prescribed alignment adjustment provides the best balance of each feature as suited for average daily driving. At Volkswagen Cypress we specialize in alignment services.

Wheel Alignment Inspection

Although such tweaks can be made because of adjustable alignment systems, such adjustments are actually a side effect rather than the reason. The real reason alignments have adjustable features is because they are part of the vehicle’s suspension system, built to absorb shock safely rather than transferring it to the axle which would be far more expensive to repair after years of wear. The alignment is designed to get knocked out off place as a means of absorbing shock, and after a certain amount of time or mileage be adjusted back to the factory settings.

Symptoms of Bad Wheel Alignment

With the examples above about race cars and off road driving, the driver is already aware of the common symptoms poor alignment will cause with bad gas mileage and premature tire wear. For the average driver, gas mileage won’t be easily recognizable other than anecdotally, it might seem like the car needs refueling more often than it should. More noticeable is how the vehicle will veer left or right when the steering wheel is centered for driving down a straight road, forcing the driver to constantly make small adjustments and corrections to their course. That might not seem like much of an issue, but it is a safety issue and can become tiring over time.
