With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Kia Sportage’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. 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 four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2011 Kia Sportage, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Kia. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Kia Sportage alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2011 Kia Sportage: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Sportage dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
Let’s talk numbers: Kia Sportage wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs.
