It’s no secret that properly functioning brakes are an integral part of staying safe in your vehicle. Kia Sportage brake problems could lead to unsafe driving conditions – or worse, an accident. If you notice shaking when you depress your brake pedal, noise from your brakes, increased stop distance, or a brake light that’s lit up on your dashboard, don’t wait to have your brakes inspected and repaired. Even the most well-maintained cars will need brake repair at some point, including your Kia Sportage. Over time, parts of your brakes (like the brake pads) experience natural wear and tear and eventually need to be replaced. Your car’s brake repair timeline can also be affected by your driving habits, as well as the climate in your area.

Much like brake problems, you don’t want to ignore issues with your tires. If your tires are damaged and can’t grip the road, your safety could be compromised. We can easily swap out a flat tire on your 1997 Kia Sportage, or if the damage isn’t severe, patch and plug your Kia Sportage tire with a simple, effective repair process. Many tread-area punctures can be repaired if they are less than ¼ of an inch in diameter. If your tire can't be safely repaired, a technician can answer any questions you have when choosing a tire replacement that suits your vehicle and your budget. To ensure that tire damage doesn’t take a toll on other components of your vehicle, we may recommend an alignment or tire balancing service at the time of your tire repair.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care is also equipped to handle many 1997 Kia Sportage transmission, drivetrain, and engine repairs. Each of these systems is made up of hundreds of interconnected parts, each rubbing against another to create heat and energy. With so many moving parts, a lot can go wrong over time. You might experience shifting delays, engine knocking, or a burnt smell coming from underneath the hood of your Sportage. With these symptoms, it’s best to bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care to diagnose the problem. The repair might be a simple spark plug replacement, or a more involved fuel pump fix.
