My car is pulling when I drive

This pulling could be due to your vehicle being out of alignment. When your wheels and tires are not in proper alignment it can cause a pull to either one side or the other. This can happen due to rough roads, pot holes, and curbs. If left for to long it can damage your tires and cause premature tire wear. We recommend to have an alignment performed once a year to make sure you're driving straight down the road. Give us a call and let us take care of you.  Happy Adventures,  Heather

Why is it important to get an alignment?

It's important to get an alignment because when your vehicle is out of "alignment" it can cause tire wear, poorly handling, poor fuel mileage and damage to components. You should have an alignment whenever you have suspension work performed and after new tires. You should have your alignment checked at least once a year due to road hazards that you probably never think about. Hitting a pot hole hard enough can cause damage to your car and it can cause your alignment to suffer.  Give us a call and let us take care of you. 541-791-2886 Happy Adventures,  Heather

Why do I need an alignment?

We recommend that you get an alignment once every 12 months or after suspension work is performed. After a year of driving there is a lot that your vehicle goes through. Everything from large speed bumps, pot holes, curbs all so many thing in between that can cause your alignment to get out of specification. Having an alignment performed after new tires, suspension work and/or once every 12 months will make sure your tires are wearing correctly to make your investment last as long as possible. Give us a call and let us take care of you.  Happy Adventures,  Heather

Potholes and Alignments

We all know that summer in Oregon is also referred to as road construction season. With that the roads are uneven, chunks are missing, large metal plates or potholes can make driving hazardous. All of these can wreak havoc on your suspension components and your alignment.  We recommend that you have your alignment checked every 12 months as a minimum, but if you're driving in harsher environments than we would suggest that you have your alignment checked more frequently.  Give us a call at 541-791-2886 or request an appointment online and let us take care of you.
