2006 Kia Sorento Wheel Alignment

Why Is Kia Sorento Alignment Important?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Kia Sorento’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. When your car has 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, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Bring your 2006 Kia Sorento in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Kia’s recommended measurements. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When Should I Get Kia Sorento Wheel Alignment?

It’s wise to have your Kia Sorento alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly 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 might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2006 Kia Sorento: 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 tires that squeal frequently. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Sorento if your wheel alignment needs attention.

How Much Does an Alignment for Kia Sorento Cost?

Let’s talk numbers: Kia Sorento wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, so you can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your tires. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Call a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care to get an estimate for 2006 Kia Sorento wheel alignment costs today.
