Just wanted to let you guys know.
I had an alignment done today at a Toyota garage
The difference in handling & feel is amazing! Especially since all the roads are ice/snow here right now.
On the way to the garage, on the highway the car felt reasonably unstable (doing 90 km/h), but that's expected from studded tires and frozen roads. By unstable I don't mean swirling all over the place, but more like the feedback telling you that the front end has very low grip. That's all nothing unusual on these winter roads.
But after the alignment, on the same highway the car felt solid as a rock with a confident front end and it was hard to tell that I was driving on pure ice!
Just a thought if you've never done a wheel alignment, your car's relatively old, and you want more safety during this time of the year.
Here's some pics of the winter wonderland up here, enjoy.
