Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2006 Kia Optima

How Does Kia Optima Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Kia Optima's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. 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. When you bring in your 2006 Kia Optima, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Kia. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Kia Optima

It’s wise to have your Kia Optima alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2006 Kia Optima: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Optima dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
