Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2016 Kia Forte

Why Is Kia Forte Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Kia Forte's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. In an alignment service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as Kia intended. When the system is aligned to Kia specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Bring your 2016 Kia Forte in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Kia recommendations. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When to Get Kia Forte Wheel Alignment

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Kia Forte alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2016 Kia Forte: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Forte dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Kia Forte?

Kia Forte wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2016 Kia Forte wheel alignment estimate.
