How do I know if I need a vehicle alignment

When it comes to our vehicles, there are a number of things that could be wrong whenever there is an issue. For example, if your vehicle is overheating, it could be as specific as needing more coolant, or there could be something much more serious (read, expensive) wrong with your vehicle.

One of the most common and easily fixable issues is needing a vehicle alignment. How do I know if I need a vehicle alignment, you ask? Well, it’s not as difficult as you’d think.

Often times, especially after a long winter, Edmonton drivers may notice their vehicle is a little out of whack. For example, they may notice their vehicle pulling to one side or the other, meaning when you take your hands off the steering wheel, it doesn’t drive straight. If you notice this, that’s a sign that you may need a vehicle alignment.

When it comes to needing a vehicle alignment, another issue you may notice is tire wear and tear. This can be a tricky example of a situation when you need a vehicle alignment because often times when we see tire wear and tear, we think we just need new tires. The trick is to look for uneven tire wear and tear, such as one side of the tire is more worn than the other. This is an example of an instance where you may need to have your vehicle realigned because this shows that the vehicle isn’t driving exactly straight.

The good thing about needing a vehicle alignment is that it’s often a cheap and easy fix. In fact, at Great West Chrysler, we have a service department that is attached and our trained service technicians are able to fix just about anything on any make and model.
