Do I have to get my car wheels aligned regularly, and if so, how frequently?

Manufacturers suggest that wheels be aligned each year to avoid premature and abnormal tire wear. Here are the benefits:

  • Tire life extension
  • Improved vehicle handling
  • More pleasant driving

Is it important to follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule?

Yes. When you follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule, you extend the life of your vehicle and its parts.

For your information, your vehicle’s recommended maintenance can be done at your garage even if your vehicle is under warranty. You just need to follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule and keep your invoices.  If a required repair is under warranty, your garage will refer you to your dealer for the latter to honour the warranty.

How do I know if a repair is urgent or not?

When you visit the Centre de l’auto Beaumont, we perform an assessment of repairs that need to be done. Each potential repair is color-coded:

  • Red: to be done immediately
  • Yellow: to be done within the next three months
  • Green: to be done within the next six months or to be reassessed within six months
