Does your Toyota Camry near Carrollton need an alignment?

September 9th, 2019 by

How often do you need an alignment? Although manufacturers often suggest an annual inspection, you may notice a need for an adjustment earlier than that. From a wobbling steering wheel to worn tires, it’s crucial to take action before an unbalanced alignment causes damage to your vehicle. Get your 2019 Toyota Camry or pre-owned Toyota Prius an appointment at Toyota of Newnan near Carrollton by calling us or scheduling an inspection online.

All vehicles require either a two-wheel or four-wheel alignment. Our techs are trained in a variety of vehicle makes and models, so we can tell you exactly which type of adjustment your car requires. However, most front-wheel-drive vehicles require a two-wheel alignment (also called a front-end alignment) whereas cars with all-wheel-drive generally require a four-wheel-alignment. Our team will be sure to make the necessary adjustments and inspect your vehicle for excess wear and tear.

A few common signs that you need an alignment include if your steering wheel is pulling from side-to-side, uneven wear on your tires, newer tires that look more worn out than they should, or a crooked steering wheel. Experts recommend an annual alignment service along with inspections during your oil change or tire rotation services.

While the typical adjustment only takes about an hour, if our techs find damage during the inspection, we will talk to you about repairs before starting the alignment. Improper car balance can affect your steering bushing, track rod, and suspension components, and its possible these components may need repairs as well.

If you’ve noticed any of these signs while driving your pre-owned Toyota Prius, then an inspection is necessary. Or if you have other questions about your current car or a 2019 Toyota Camry, then talk to our team at Toyota of Newnan.
