fwiw-firestone has a coupon for 40 bucks off lifetime alignment. dunno what that totals out to, but it might be a good deal for all them awd cars out there.
so, what are you saying? that it's gonna be cheaper? because it aintIt is worth while to get a complete alignment check once, just to see what the overall numbers are. Be sure to get a printout for later reference. However, since the only alignment adjustment that can easily be performed on the Elantra is the front toe, none of the other items will be adjusted. So, for the Elantra, you do not need a fancy alignment. All you need is the front toe set.
wtf is a free alignment check gonna do? "yup, you need an alignment. 90 bucks" get a free brake check, too. "yup, you need pads and rotors, 450 bucks." oh, oh, how about a free cooling system check. "yup, you need upper and lower hoses, and a radiator. 500 bucks." "oh, and we did a free belt check, too. you need new belts, 200 bucks." most people are gonna know something is wrong, or see uneven wear. AND, if you go back and read my post, i said it might be a good deal for AWD cars. as in, all wheel drive. how many elantras have you seen with all wheel drive? AND, front and rear alignment is possible. there are kits made to correct camber/caster/toe. so, if i get an alignment, with a printout, i will be able to see if corrections need to be made. if our car is pulling, i certainly aint gonna take it to the dealer, who not only has limits, but because i know a good shop can easily align it.It is worth calling around to see if you can negotiate a cheaper price to have them just check and adjust the front toe. My Hyundai dealer has a quick alignment check in the drive up waiting area. They will check it for free. Some alignment shops will check your alignment for free.
