Your Volkswagen car or SUV is an amazing vehicle that’s incredibly fun to drive. But if the wheels aren’t properly aligned, it will be much less fun and can even be dangerous. That’s why it’s best to have your alignment checked regularly and adjusted if needed. We’re proud to offer this service at Volkswagen of New Port Richey, serving Elfers and Seven Springs. Learn more on this page, and then head to Volkswagen of New Port Richey for this service.
When your Volkswagen was made, the camber, toe, and caster angles of its wheels were precisely aligned. These three angles refer to how the wheels are aligned in reference to each other and the body of your VW. During an all-wheel alignment service, the technicians in our service center will inspect the alignment angles of all four wheels. If they detect that the alignment is off, they’ll use precision tools to bring your wheels back into alignment.
If you drive a Volkswagen model with all-wheel drive, you will need an all-wheel alignment service. VW models equipped with two-wheel drive only need a two-wheel alignment.
At Volkswagen of New Port Richey, we recommend having this service performed at least once a year. This will ensure that your VW continues to function well.
If the wheels on your VW model aren’t aligned as they should be, you may notice that your vehicle pulls to one side or the other when you drive. Some people test this by going to an empty, flat parking lot and trying to drive straight without holding the wheel. This can be helpful, but it may also fail to detect smaller misalignment. Another sign of misalignment is unevenly worn tires. But this is a sign you don’t want to wait for, since replacing tires can be expensive! The best way to tell if your wheels are misaligned is to come to Volkswagen of New Port Richey for regular alignment service.
