An alignment involves making adjustments to your Kia Sportage's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has 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, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2013 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 could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2013 Kia Sportage: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, 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.
Let’s talk numbers: Kia Sportage wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly 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 get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 2013 Kia Sportage wheel alignment estimate.
