Vehicle alignment service helps your tires last longer, can help improve gas mileage and provides tighter handling to give you and your passengers a better ride. An alignment inspection and service can keep you worry free and your vehicle on the road longer.
Rough roads, potholes and the occasional smacking of a curb don’t just make for an uncomfortable ride; they can knock your wheels out of proper alignment. Misaligned wheels can pull your vehicle to one side and cause you to constantly correct your steering. If your vehicle pulls to one side consistently when you apply your brakes, it could be an alignment issue. Lack of proper alignment can also cause an annoying “shimmy” or vibration in your steering wheel. Wheels that are out of alignment can also cause uneven tire wear. Uneven tires wear out more quickly and don’t grip the road properly, especially in bad weather. Left unchecked, misaligned wheels can cost you time, money and headaches.
The highly trained Jiffy Lube® technicians are knowledgeable about vehicle alignment. After a quick discussion with you about how your vehicle is driving, they will conduct wheel angle measurements using precise equipment. These wheel angle measurements will show whether your wheels are within the alignment settings specified by your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations. If they don’t match the recommendations, not to worry — Jiffy Lube technicians can adjust them so that they are.

Many vehicle manufacturers now recommend Alignment, Drivetrain and Suspension Service inspections at the same time you get your oil changed. But because alignment issues are often a result of a specific incident, like a wheel banging hard against a pothole, curb or obstacle in the road, it’s better to be safe than sorry and have your alignment checked. Especially if any of the symptoms above occur immediately after the incident.
