An automobile shortens the distance and eventually saves the time of an individual. The distance that would be covered in half an hour on foot now easily gets covered in ten minutes via a car. The intervention of the automobile has accelerated the human life as commuting has become a lesser arduous task now. Despite the optimistic side, driving an automobile has a downside as well. Road mishaps have greatly incremented since the automobiles have begun running on the highway. There are various causes of the road mishaps but one cause amidst the lot is severe that is: problem in wheel alignment.

Wheel alignment is primarily a crucial strand of car maintenance, which entails various things such as adjustment of wheel angles and other car specifications. It plays a pivotal role in an automobiles performance. In the regular driving course, drivers rarely witness the impact of wheel alignment on their driving mode. It is only when the car out beats other cars on the road or abrupt use of breaks reveals the fortification of wheel alignment. Sometimes, if there is a problem in the wheel alignment, then the car tends to lose its balance and in turn, collides with another vehicle.

By analyzing this problem in the beginning, the damage can be prevented and additionally, the car wheels can be repaired. For this, the automobile repair and maintenance business owner should look for three essential symptoms in the car. Finding out these symptoms can avert the mishaps.

  1. The car goes towards one side

There are many problems in the car which are unrelated to the wheel alignment. Thus, the automobile repair and maintenance business owner should inquire a couple of questions from the car owners. Firstly, does the car swerve abruptly when the driver leaves the steering for a momentary time? Secondly, does the car-swerving happen recurrently?

Car-veering is an indication that something is wrong with the car wheels. If the wheels are not aligned at the right time, then the car owner will eventually lose his control over the car. Thus, the automobile repairing business owner should immediately bring the problem into notice and align the wheels.

  1. Observe the steering wheel

Another easy way to ascertain if the wheels angles are poorly fixated is the level of the steering wheel. Usually, the steering wheel of the car remains in the centre especially when the car is driven on a smooth and straight road. If the steering wheel changes its level, goes sideways or upwards, then it signifies a problem in the wheels of the car. In essence, the car driver can ascertain the level of the steering wheel by observing the emblem on the wheel. If the emblem is not at centre and seemed tilted then the steering wheel is off the level. This symptom indicates that the car wheels need to be aligned as soon as possible.

So, the garage owner should examine the steering wheel and enumerate the symptom properly to the car driver.

  1. Loose steering wheel

To ascertain the wheel alignment, the mechanic needs to enquire from the car driver if he finds the steering wheel loose in the last few days. In essence, the steering is invariably tightened and requires a slight effort from the drivers side. If the car delays changing its course after the movement of the steering wheel, then there could be an alignment problem.

Besides glitch in the wheels, there can be any other problem in the car as well. Thus, the automobile repairing business owner should thoroughly investigate the car.

The above-mentioned symptoms should be employed while discerning wheel alignment in the automobile.
