Is It Time to Schedule an Alignment for Your Dodge Durango?

If you’re curious about the routine maintenance your car will need over its lifetime, you may be looking for mechanics who can explain what to do. Luckily, you needn’t look any further because our experts in our Asheville, NC Dodge service center will be glad to tell you all about routine maintenance.

Whether you have a new Dodge Durango or an older model, you can find your car’s routine maintenance schedule in your owner’s manual. That schedule delineates the services your automobile needs and when you should schedule each one in the contexts of mileage and time. You probably won’t see alignments in your routine maintenance schedule, however.

Although they’re usually not included in a routine maintenance schedule, alignments or alignment checks are still a service you should schedule regularly. In general, you should schedule an alignment check every 6,000 miles or every other time you get your oil changed.

There are instances where you may want to schedule an alignment or an inspection more often. If you hit a pothole or a curb hard or you drive on roads that are poorly maintained daily, it can take a toll on your alignment. This can eventually force you to schedule a realignment sooner rather than later.

If you wait too long to get an alignment, it can negatively influence your experience as a car owner or lessee. When your car is out of alignment, it will affect the way it handles on the road and drive up your fuel expenses. It can also cause your tires to experience uneven or premature wear and tear, which may require you to replace your tires sooner than you’d otherwise have to.
