Automotive Tips from CROSSROADS AUTOMOTIVE: Signs of an Alignment Problem

When properly aligned, all of your wheels are pointed in the same direction. Your vehicle will track true and handle the way it is designed. NEWNAN drivers often associate our wheels being “knocked” out of alignment with an event like an accident, hitting a pothole, curb or some other object. While these can certainly take your wheels out of alignment, the bumps and bounces of everyday NEWNAN driving take their toll on wheel alignment as well. In addition, your vehicle can lose alignment over time with just normal driving. When your wheels are out of alignment, CROSSROADS AUTOMOTIVE in NEWNAN can return your wheels to the vehicle manufacturer’s factory settings. Most owner's manuals suggest an alignment check every year or two.  Give us a call.CROSSROADS AUTOMOTIVE3210 HWY 34 ENEWNAN, GA 30265770.254.8261
