Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2001 Kia Optima

Why Is Kia Optima Alignment Important?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Kia Optima’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. During the 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 your system is aligned to the measurements that Kia specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Bring your 2001 Kia Optima in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Kia. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Kia Optima

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Kia Optima alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2001 Kia Optima: 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 Optima dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

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