Volkswagen Wheel Alignment Overview

Periodically, your Volkswagen will need a wheel alignment service. This is often done at the interval inspections, but sometimes you may need another service in between. Depending on the type of Volkswagen you have, you can get either a two-wheel alignment or a four-wheel alignment. Below are the differences between the two, what you can expect during the service, and what prompts you to bring your car in for this service.

Two-Wheel Alignment vs. Four-Wheel Alignment

Depending on which model Volkswagen you have, you either have a two-wheel or all-wheel drive vehicle. If you have a two-wheel-drive Volkswagen, then you would get the two-wheel alignment. For an all-wheel-drive Volkswagen, you can expect the four-wheel alignment on your vehicle. The difference between the two is what tires are removed and aligned during the service. Only the front two tires are aligned for the two-wheel alignment because that is where the actual driving tires are. For the four-wheel alignment where all of the tires are turning and used to drive, they all need to be aligned.

What can I expect from this service?

When you have either a two-wheel alignment or a four-wheel alignment, you can expect certified technicians to remove the tires from your Volkswagen and make the necessary suspension adjustments. At that point, they are rotated and then put back on your Volkswagen.

An alignment is needed over time, and many things may cause your wheels to fall out of alignment sooner. Sometimes, if you drive a road with lots of potholes, you may need an alignment much sooner. Those who travel roads with a lot of construction find this to be the case. But even certain driving habits can call for more frequent alignments.

What happens if I don't get the alignment?

If you do not go in for a scheduled two-wheel alignment or four-wheel alignment, the walls of your tires will start to wear unevenly. This will cause you to have to replace tires more frequently and cost more money over time. Also, they will impact the suspension and force you to replace other parts that otherwise would have lasted longer. You will know when it is time to come in simply by having your Volkswagen pull to one specific direction when driving.
