Wheel Alignment
What is it?
A wheel alignment is the adjustment of angles that the tires make in relation to the road surface and each other. The primary alignment angles are chamber, caster, and toe.A wheel alignment is often performed after replacing tires or suspension components, after an impact with a pothole or curb, or when the following conditions occur: abnormal tire wear, an offset steering wheel, or handling concerns (drifting, pulling, wandering, darting).

Technicians measure alignment angles using sophisticated equipment, then adjust or possibly replace suspension components as needed to set alignment to original Honda specifications.

What if I ignore it?
• Increased or irregular tire wear and more frequent tire replacement
• Vehicle may drift, wander, pull or dart

What if I take care of it?
• Prolongs tire life
• Helps optimize your vehicle’s handling based on original Honda specifications
• Reduces steering effort

Honda Transmission Plant Associates Earn State of Ohio Award


Associates at the Honda Transmission Plant in Ohio recently earned the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Gold Star Adopt-a-Highway designation. The Honda facility’s associates were honored for 25 years of their volunteer litter collection events along the Russells Point facility’s roadways.

Gold Star Adopt-a-Highway designation is awarded to organizations for events held for five or more years, that have conducted at least four pickups per year and that completed them safely. Over the last 25 years, Honda Transmission Plant associates have held more than 100 Adopt-a- Highway events, consistently prioritizing safety while promoting environmental excellence through the initiatives.

“This honor celebrates our Honda associates who have volunteered over the past quarter century to make our community a better place by collecting litter during Adopt-a-Highway events,” said Gerald Bruch, plant lead at the Honda Transmission Plant in Ohio. “Our goal as a company is to be a company that society wants to exist and it is the efforts of Honda associates that help make that possible.”
