Bumper to Bumper Radio, the car guys on KTAR, 92.3 FM in Phoenix, AZ, broadcast every Saturday from 11:00 am to noon. On this show, Matt Allen of Virginia Auto Service in Phoenix, AZ talks about how you can tell if you need a wheel alignment and what to expect is you suspect you need one. Also on this show:

  • How do auto repair shops accurately measure whether or not your vehicle needs an alignment?
  • Should you have your alignment set regularly or at a certain mileage?
  • Do auto shops try to upsell alignments as an added service?
  • What's the best way to check your car's alignment by yourself?
  • What should you expect to pay for a wheel alignment?
  • 2016 Volkswagen Golf: At just 25k miles, should I be concerned that anything needs to be replaced since it's rarely driven?
  • 2007 Volkswagen Passat: My check engine light has recently come on. What do you think is most likely the reason?
  • 2014 Toyota Corolla: Can your alignment go out if you're only going over speed bumps with 1 tire?
  • 1994 Dodge Dakota: My truck is overheating after driving around 20 miles. How can I fix this issue?
  • 2008 Kia Sorento: What could be the source of an intermittent noise coming from my vehicle?
  • 2005 Kia Spectra: This car isn't starting without push-starting it. Is this a problem with the starter itself?

Cars talked about on this show are the 2016 Volkswagen Golf, 2007 Volkswagen Passat, 2014 Toyota Corolla, 1994 Dodge Dakota, 2008 Kia Sorento, and the 2005 Kia Spectra.
