When your Nissan model was first made, its wheels were perfectly aligned. However, wheels do not always stay aligned, and your vehicle will require wheel alignment service to continue performing at its best. When the time comes for your Nissan to have its wheels aligned, come to Bravo Nissan in Victoria, Texas.
If your Nissan has independent or semi-independent rear suspension, it will likely need four-wheel alignment. Vehicles with a solid rear axle, on the other hand, generally only need two-wheel alignment. If you are unsure which type of rear suspension your Nissan has, we will be glad to let you know.
There are many reasons your vehicle’s wheels may become improperly aligned. Getting into a collision, hitting a big pothole, or running over a curb can cause your wheels to become misaligned. However, even daily driving can slowly knock your wheels out of alignment, so regular alignment service is a good idea.
If your wheels are not aligned as they should be, you may begin to notice certain symptoms. Your vehicle may pull to one side as you drive, you may need to correct course often, your steering wheel may be crooked, and you may even notice uneven tire tread wear. However, misaligned wheels don’t always show obvious symptoms, so we recommend having your wheels’ alignment checked regularly.
When you bring your Nissan to Bravo Nissan for a four-wheel alignment, our technicians will inspect the camber, toe, and caster angles on all four wheels. The camber angle refers to the wheels’ inward or outward tilt when viewed from the front or rear, and the toe angle refers to the wheels’ tilt when viewed from above or below. Caster angle refers to the difference between the steering axis and a vertical line. If any of these angles do not match factory specifications, we will use precision instruments to make the necessary adjustments.
When you’re ready to bring your Nissan in for a four-wheel alignment, we make it simple at the Bravo Nissan service department.

For your scheduling convenience, our service department is open six days a week: Monday through Friday from 8:00 am until 6:00 pm, and Saturday from 8:00 am until 1:00 pm.
