If your car feels shaky and the steering wheel is vibrating, chances are that your vehicle needs its wheels aligned. Our dealership thinks it’s imperative for all drivers to understand why proper wheel alignment is important.
At Weld County Garage Buick GMC, our GMC dealer serving Fort Collins, we offer a state-of-the-art service department that can take care of your car’s wheel maintenance. Wheel alignment is a common service need. It involves adjusting three main angles of your tires to ensure that your vehicle is driving where you point the steering wheel.
Over time, your car’s suspension endures enough wear and tear from the road to jostle things out of position. This is something that happens to every vehicle. Even things that seem minor, like driving over a speed bump too quickly or bumping into a curb, can affect your vehicle’s suspension and steering.
Have you noticed that your vehicle’s steering wheel is off center even when the car is driving straight? If so, you’re in need of a wheel alignment. The more time your drive a misaligned vehicle, the more damage you’ll cause so it’s important to get the alignment taken care of as soon as possible. Poor alignment also causes the lifespan of your tires to suffer. Tires are expensive, so taking proper care of your vehicle’s tires can save you money in the long run.

World Class Technicians are the one and only GM experts!
World Class Technicians complete more than 650 hours of training to obtain their World Class status. They achieve this elite status after satisfying the strict requirements for their respective Mechanical area, which includes obtaining Master Technician Certification (MTC) in select areas. Technicians maintain this status as long as they achieve 100% STS annually for the area(s) in which they are certified.
Less than 3% of all GM techs are World Class, and we are lucky to have not only one, but 4 World Class Technicians! We interviewed each of these men this month to get to know them more.
How long have you worked at Weld County Garage?

How does it help you in your career?

What are you hobbies outside of work? Officiating high school sports, skiing, surfing, golfing. My favorite sport to officiate is the one I’m doing at the time.
