With our wealth of experience, we are certainly the leading choice for Vauxhall alignment in Lincoln and Coventry.
What is Wheel Alignment?
Wheel alignment is part of a standard vehicle maintenance that consists of adjusting the angles of wheels to the car manufacturer specifications. The reason for these adjustments is to reduce tyre wear, and to ensure that the vehicle travels straight (without "pulling" to one side).
It’s important to note that a wheel alignment issue is not a wheel or tyre problem. It’s a problem with the vehicle’s suspension. Wheel alignment is gradually lost as parts of the suspension wear out.
We are fully equipped with the latest alignment technology that allows us to identify any problems with your tracking and resolve it as quickly as we can.
Do I Need Vauxhall Front Wheel Alignment?
If your car is pulling to one side when driving or if you have to hold the steering off centre to keep going straight, you probably have a wheel alignment issue. This means that your wheels are not making the right contact with the road or you have imbalanced steering.
Your tracking could be incorrect if you feel that your Vauxhall:
- Has uneven or abnormal tyre wear
- Is dragging or pulling one side
- Has a steering wheel vibration
- Has a scrubbing or squealing noise at low speeds
What Causes Misalignment?
It is surprisingly easy for the wheels on your car to become misaligned. You’re driving your Vauxhall Astra, and maybe you hit a bump in the road or clip a curb. Accidents, road conditions and potholes are all high contributors to knocking the tracking off your car.
Why Is Wheel Alignment Important?
Tracking and wheel alignment is an essential part of the upkeep of your Vauxhall. If wheel alignment isn’t checked from time to time it can cause even bigger issues for your vehicle in the future.
For example, if your wheels aren’t aligned properly, your tires will likely wear down unevenly, causing you to replace them more often than necessary. With the price of new tyres, this can end up being very expensive.
Another thing to consider is fuel savings, as any extra drag will limit the efficiency of your car.
Furthermore, if your car is drifting then it will not be as safe to drive, not only when you aren’t paying attention, but it’s also less safe when road conditions aren’t the best as your car isn’t as easy to steer.
What Is The Vauxhall Wheel Alignment Cost?
The Wheel Alignment cost will vary depending on which model you have. For example, a Vauxhall Corsa front wheel alignment will cost less than a much larger model. Feel free to speak to a member of our team to discuss this in more detail.
