Large potholes can cause serious damage to your car and quickly throw your wheel alignment out of whack. Learn more in this week’s blog, below.
Winter Weather Can Wreak Havoc On Your Wheel Alignment
Wheel alignment matters
Many drivers consider wheel alignment to be a minor maintenance issue that doesn’t matter very much to your car’s overall performance, driveability, and health, but this is not true. Wheel alignment is important to ensure that your car handles and drives correctly, so if you feel like your wheel alignment might be incorrect, be sure to contact your Baltimore mechanic to have it checked out immediately.
Makes driving safer
Uses less fuel
Did you know that when your wheels are out of alignment, you actually use more gas than you would otherwise? That’s because when your wheels are not properly aligned, it creates resistance between the road and your car, making it more difficult to accelerate and therefore requiring a larger influx of fuel.
Keeps your car happier
The strain that is caused by wheels that are out of alignment is tough on your car and can lead to bigger problems down the line. It’s particularly tough on your car’s suspension system and steering components, which may suffer damage if you don’t get visit a mechanic promptly.
