Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2011 Kia Rio5

How Does Kia Rio5 Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Kia Rio5’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. In an alignment service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Kia intended them to. 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. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2011 Kia Rio5, we’ll perform an alignment check first. 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.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Kia Rio5

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Kia Rio5 alignment checked about 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 might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2011 Kia Rio5: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Rio5 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
