Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Kia Optima’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Kia. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Kia specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2013 Kia Optima, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. 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.
It's a good idea to have your Kia Optima alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce 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 2013 Kia Optima: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Optima if your wheel alignment needs attention.
