Avoiding sub-standard surfaces when driving can be difficult, and you may have suffered a punctured tyre or, even worse, a buckled wheel.
However, punctures and buckled wheels are immediately identified and can be repaired before further damage occurs. But what about the less obvious damage potholes can do to your car?
The geometry of your car keeps it driving in a straight line - if it is out of alignment it can cause tyres to wear unevenly and increase your car’s fuel consumption. And it can be put out of line by exposure to potholes and uneven surfaces.
At Porsche Centre Cambridge we offer a full geometry check which will identify if any adjustments are needed, so you can avoid the risk and expense of repairing damage in the future. The check is available for £50 plus VAT.
If you are interested in making an appointment for a geometry check for your Porsche, please call 01223 872872 to speak to our Aftersales Team.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
