With all the advances in vehicle technology and performance, it can be difficult to keep up with all the required maintenance and repairs.

To people who aren't familiar with automobile suspension science, the idea that a vehicle's wheels can go out of alignment might seem a little weird.

The first time that you may suspect a wheel alignment problem is when you are driving down the road and your car feels like it drifts or pulls to one side.

If you have ever cursed an oncoming driver because their lights were blinding you, or noticed that your lights tend to illuminate the tops of roadside trees instead of the road, there is a good chance that you are dealing with misaligned headlights.

When you drive, you expect your wheels and tires to stay straight unless you turn the steering wheel.

No car, truck, or SUV is going to last forever, but keeping your vehicle working well for as long as possible will save you both headaches and money.

Keeping a car, truck, or other vehicle running safely and efficiently requires a certain amount of routine maintenance.

Among routine vehicle maintenance items, wheel alignment may be the most misunderstood.

You’ve probably never considered how your wheel stays upright.

Those of you rolling in a Volkswagen Jetta or Rabbit that was hecho en Mexico, take note: VW is recalling 340,000 vehicles sold in the U.S. due to a headlamp defect. The recall stems from rubber caps that could be missing from the horizontal and vertical headlight alignment screws, something that's apparently required by federal safety standards. A V-Dub spokesman said that there was no danger to drivers, and beginning today, owners could have the parts replaced at a local Volkswagen dealer.
