An alignment involves making adjustments to your Kia Soul EV's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your 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, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: 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 2016 Kia Soul EV, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Kia. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Kia Soul EV alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce 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 2016 Kia Soul EV: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your Soul EV dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
On a budget? Kia Soul EV wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2016 Kia Soul EV wheel alignment estimate.
