Many cars need an alignment just from everyday driving, but there are other factors that could cause it to need one as well.
- Uneven tire wear
- The car drifts to one side
- The steering wheel isn’t centered even though you are driving straight
- The steering wheel vibrates
Also, check the owner’s manual for the recommended time interval that it should be serviced. The term “alignment” is about your car’s suspension, not the tires. It could get worn and springs could stretch out. Bumping a curb or a small accident alone can disrupt the suspension and move some of the components that would otherwise balance your wheels. Alignments are much cheaper than having to replace the tires from uneven wear. It will also ensure that your car handles properly and drives straight.
