It’s hard to find Colorado Springs drivers who haven’t had run-ins with potholes. Try as we may to avoid them, sometimes there are just too many — or one manages to sneak up on you. But jolts like potholes can knock the wheels on your Honda out of alignment. When this happens, you’ll notice a number of negative effects. For one thing, your vehicle may pull to the side as you drive down the road, forcing you to constantly correct course. This can make your drive less enjoyable, as well as being less safe. Misaligned wheels can also wear your tires down quickly and unevenly.
Two-Wheel Alignment – This is the service that’s generally required for two-wheel drive vehicles. Our technicians will inspect the steering and suspension elements of your Honda’s drive wheels, checking the camber, toe, and caster angles. If anything is misaligned, they will use precision instruments to return everything to factory specifications.
All-Wheel Alignment – All-wheel alignment is generally necessary if you drive an all-wheel drive or four-wheel drive model. However, some four-wheel drive models with a solid rear axle only require two-wheel alignments.
It’s a good idea to have your alignment checked once a year, particularly in a place with roads like the ones here in Colorado Springs. Of course, if you notice any symptoms of wheel misalignment, you should head in earlier. It’s also a good idea to visit Groove Honda for an alignment inspection if you’ve recently run over a curb, hit a particularly big pothole, or been in a fender bender. All of these things can jolt your vehicle’s wheels out of alignment.
