Tire alignment and Wheel alignment is part of the standard car and truck maintenance that consists of adjusting the angles of wheels so that they are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the ground. The purpose of these wheel alignments are to keep your
car traveling straight and not pulling to the left or the right. With all the advances in vehicle technology and performance, it can seem daunting to keep up with all the required maintenance and repairs. That’s why I take my cars to Charlie Marabella of Paradise Auto & Truck Center in San Marcos Ca. He takes care of everything. I don’t even have to know how to change my oil. In fact, I’ve never lifted the hood on my car to even look at the engine and never to fix something! Are you kidding me? It’s not like fixing a 1965 VW Bug, which was my first car and was such a simple engine, I could do all the work myself at 16 years old, but not with the advancement
of newer cars. There are so much electronics now a days, the cars even tell you when they need an oil change now. Yes, we sure have come a long way in terms of advancement of cars. Shortly, you will see driverless cars and cars that will attach themselves to each other like a train of cars going down the freeway.
Top five common signs your vehicle is in need of an alignment.
1.) You are driving down the road or freeway and your steering wheel is off center. If you’re driving straight down a flat, level road,
your steering wheel should be perfectly straight. The steering wheel should be sitting centered and straight, and your vehicle emblem in the center of the steering wheel should appear level to you. If the wheel is off center by more than a
few degrees in either direction, it’s time to have an alignment. An alignment will return your steering wheel to center and should improve the overall performance as well.
2.) You are driving down the road or freeway and your vehicle pulls in one direction or the other! This is easily noticed while driving straight down a level road.
3.) You notice abnormal tire wear in certain spots, usually the inside or the outside of the tire shows more wear than the other side.
Tire wear patterns gives us clues as to your tire pressures, suspension condition, and alignment problems. Wear on only the inside or outside edges of tires indicates a problem with the camber adjustment. Feathering or scalloping of the tires often indicates a problem with the toe adjustment. Tire wear is most often noticed by a mechanic while performing a tire rotation. If you have any of these abnormal tire wear patterns, then you should consider having an alignment performed or in a very bad situation, you may have to replace two tires. You never should replace one tire.
4.) You are driving down the road or freeway and your vehicle handling feels loose. If the steering in your car feels a little
loose or unstable, one of the possible causes is poor wheel alignment. Anytime your vehicle feels a bit unstable while driving, regardless of driving straight or turning, you should have the alignment checked and then corrected at Paradise Auto & Truck Center in San Marcos Ca.
5.) You are driving down the road and you make a turn your steering wheel doesn’t return to center. After you complete a turn, the steering wheel should naturally start to return to center on it’s own. If your steering wheel doesn’t even attempt to move itself back to center, then it’s a good indication that your alignment is off. If this is the case, then you should bring your car or truck into Paradise Auto & Truck Center in San Marcos Ca. Charlie Marabella is there every day and will ensure that you are taken care of like a VIP Customer!
