If your car or truck is drifting to the side, one potential explanation is that your vehicle needs an alignment service. Simply put, the normal tendency for trucks and cars to travel in a straight line is in part due to the natural alignment of its wheels. Assuming that there are no issues with your actual tires, if yours veers to the left or right, it’s likely that your car alignment requires an adjustment.
What is Car Wheel Alignment?
“In its most basic form, a wheel alignment consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. The purpose of these adjustments is maximum tire life and a vehicle that tracks straight and true when driving along a straight and level road.”
First thing, check your tire pressure. Uneven tire pressure can sometimes be the cause of veering. This may potentially be the sign of a tire leak.
If the pressure is normal, then it’s reasonable to expect that you’re in need of a wheel/tire alignment service.
There are several reasons that can cause a car to drift, pull, or veer to the left. For customer safety we always urge customers visit our service department for a regular safety inspection. Only then may we accurately suggest advice on your unique vehicle.
The cost of a car or truck wheel alignment service can vary. The price is influenced by the service provider, the Oklahoma City where you are, any applicable warranties or extended warranties, and most importantly the make, year, and model of your vehicle. A quick call to your mechanic is typically the best way to find out.
While there are more than a few auto maintenance shops in Oklahoma City that offer car wheel alignment service, we are one of the few offering service by factory-trained Acura specialists, although our technicians service most makes and models. Call for pricing.
It often needs a certified automotive technician to identify whether you need an alignment or not. If there’s nothing obviously amiss about your tire pressure or tires, but your car or truck continues to veer, pull, or drift to the right, then bring it by to have it assessed. We look forward to helping you get back on track.
