Have you found yourself fighting with the steering wheel to keep your car going straight down the road and not drifting to the side? If so, you may be wondering what causes car alignment problems? This is a fairly common occurrence if you have owned a car for very long. Even though alignment problems can develop over time, it’s more than likely caused by a specific incident. Unfortunately, wheel alignment issues aren’t always obvious right away and they tend to get worse if neglected, resulting in further damage to the tires, wheels and suspension system.

Here are just a few fairly common incidents that can cause car alignment problems:

  • Running over or hitting curbs
  • Going too fast over speed bumps
  • Hitting potholes too fast
  • Auto accidents, even minor ones
  • Neglect of vehicle maintenance

You are probably already aware that poor wheel alignment affects the handling of your vehicle. But what is misalignment, you ask? Misalignment is a condition when the tires are not pointing in the same direction as the steering wheel. Poor alignment will shorten the life of your tires by thousands of miles and compromise crucial steering and suspension parts if not corrected. As soon as you start to notice steering problems, schedule a wheel alignment service.

A periodic wheel alignment service will restore your car’s handling and safety, improve fuel economy, prevent damage to vital vehicle components, plus extend the life of your tires. The price of an alignment service is relatively inexpensive compared to the cost of new tires or repairs to the suspension system.
