An alignment involves making adjustments to your Kia Sportage's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. 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 the system is aligned to Kia specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 2002 Kia Sportage, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Kia’s recommended measurements. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.
It's a good idea to have your Kia Sportage alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your 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 2002 Kia Sportage: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Sportage if your wheel alignment needs attention.
On a budget? Kia Sportage wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, 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. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2002 Kia Sportage wheel alignment estimate.
