Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2011 Kia Soul

How Does Kia Soul Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Kia Soul’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In an alignment 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, all of your tires experience equal pressure. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2011 Kia Soul, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Kia’s recommended measurements. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When Should I Get Kia Soul Wheel Alignment?

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Kia Soul alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2011 Kia Soul: 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. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Soul dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Kia Soul?

Kia Soul wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2011 Kia Soul wheel alignment estimate.
