WHY DO I NEED FOUR WHEEL ALIGNMENT?
A car needs all four wheels correctly aligned to reduce tyre wear and improve handling.
Many alignment centres only “do the tracking” – making sure the front wheels are parallel. Modern cars can have all four wheels aligned, so "doing the tracking" is only half the job. A four wheel alignment inspection will also act as a health check for your car’s suspension, so it should be part of your regular service schedule.
If you have a car with Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Control and a many other Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) you MUST have your car regularly 4-wheel aligned to keep them working properly. After a small bump or even a windscreen change, 4-wheel alignment is needed when the repairer re-calibrates the ADAS sensors.
Don't leave it to chance, search for an Absolute Alignment Approved (AAA) centre.
Four wheel alignment is vital to your car's suspension. Alongside the MoT, an alignment check is one of the few times that a mechanic inspects vital components. As part of the AAA Centre inspection a trained technician will look over the suspension and make sure there is no damage that could compromise safety or cause bigger bills.
The state of Britain’s roads means that damage can happen in the blink of an eye – potholes, speed humps and kerbs could have been specially designed to knock your wheels out of alignment!
