Routine maintenance is important for keeping your vehicle in good condition and to prevent major problems. The most known services include oil change, tire balance, and tire rotation. However, when was the last time you got a front end alignment? While you may get a wheel alignment regularly, there is a chance you’re neglecting the front end.
If you notice that you have uneven wear on the front tires, your vehicle is pulling, or your steering wheel isn’t centered, it’s time for a front end alignment. To ensure that you get quality service, schedule an appointment at our dealership in Guam today. Our service team is comprised of Nissan/Infiniti-certified and ASE Master technicians. No matter what service you need, our technicians will provide you with high-quality service.
Many people are confused about the difference between wheel alignments and front end alignments. The biggest difference is where the service focuses. The process is the same, but in a front end alignment, the focus is on the front wheels. This process is rather complex to make sure that everything is in the right place. The mechanic must take a series of measurement and maneuvers to meet the alignment specifications of the vehicle. To ensure accurate alignment, machines are typically used to avoid the potential of human error.
Front end alignments take about an hour to do, so be prepared to have something to do, or have a friend pick you up while you wait for your vehicle to be aligned. While contacting our service department for quote is the best choice, front end alignments cost anywhere between $75 to $200 on average.
Mechanics recommend that you get your front end alignment at approximately every 50,000 miles. However, it’s important to look for signs as well. These signs include uneven tread wear, pulling to one side, vibrating and loose handling. If you notice any of these signs, schedule an appointment at Nissan Guam as soon as possible.
