Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1996 Kia Sportage

Why Is Kia Sportage Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Kia Sportage’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your 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, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 1996 Kia Sportage, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Kia recommendations. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Kia Sportage

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Kia Sportage 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 might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1996 Kia Sportage: 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 tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your Sportage dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs.
