Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Kia Sportage’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. During the 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 suspension is aligned to Kia’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1999 Kia Sportage, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Kia recommendations. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.
It’s wise to have your Kia Sportage alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly 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 might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1999 Kia Sportage: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, 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.
Kia Sportage wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. 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. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 1999 Kia Sportage wheel alignment estimate.
