We all have probably heard at least once that our car needs an alignment. Nevertheless, most of the people are still confused what it really is and how does it affect your driving.

Proper wheel alignment will also impact gas mileage, breaking and efficient stopping but is underestimated by many of us before it is too late. Good news is that you do not need to do it regularly.
