Your Volkswagen model is a remarkable example of precision German engineering. It's designed to deliver an exceptional driving experience, and properly aligned wheels play a large role in this. If your wheels are knocked out of alignment, your drive will likely leave you tired since you have to constantly correct course. It can also put you in danger; since misaligned wheels often cause your vehicle to veer to one side or the other, you risk drifting into a curb or the wrong lane. What's more, improperly aligned wheels can cause your tires to wear down unevenly and prematurely. Since improperly aligned wheels can cause so much trouble, we recommend getting regular wheel alignment service at Colonial Volkswagen of Medford.

When your VW model was first assembled, the manufacturer ensured the wheels were precisely aligned. As you drive your VW, it will run over various bumps and jolts on the road; this can slowly knock your wheels out of alignment, little by little. Some things can cause major misalignment much quicker, including getting into an accident, hitting a big pothole, or running over a curb.
When you bring your VW to Colonial Volkswagen of Medford for wheel alignment service, our technicians will check your vehicle's suspension elements. They will also check the camber, toe, and caster angles of your wheels. Camber angle refers to the wheels' tilt when you view them from the front or rear, while toe angle refers to the wheels' tilt when viewed from above or below. Camber angle refers to the difference between a vertical line and your vehicle's steering axis. If our technicians find that these angles are incorrect, they will use precision instruments to return them to perfect alignment.
