Since misalignment often happens over time, it might not be immediately apparent that your car is out of alignment. That's why it's so important to keep an eye on a few things: your tire tread and steering wheel. Uneven wear is one of the most common signs that you need an alignment, as is a steering wheel that's off-center or pulls to one side while you drive. Certain events can cause a misalignment, like hitting a curb, going off-roading, or minor fender-benders. More serious accidents will typically require an alignment among other repairs and services.
The frequency of services like alignments really depends on your vehicle and how you use it. However, aligning wheels is one of many maintenance tasks that every vehicle requires. You should have your wheels aligned at least once a year as part of its regular maintenance schedule - and even more often under certain circumstances. If you travel on bumpy roads with lots of potholes or take your vehicle off-road, you should check alignment at least twice a year.
When you bring your vehicle in to San Jose Mitsubishi for an alignment, you might be wondering how it works. We start by lifting your vehicle and using a machine to measure the alignment of each tire. Our skilled technicians then make the proper adjustments to different components of each tire, ensuring they all align. Then, we check the steering wheel for accuracy before taking your vehicle on a quick test drive. It's a good idea to get an alignment every time you get new tires to make them last as long as possible.
