An alignment involves making adjustments to your Kia Sportage's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. In an alignment service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Kia intended them to. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Kia specifies for your vehicle, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2014 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 make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
It’s wise to have your Kia Sportage alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. 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 2014 Kia Sportage: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. 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. 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. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Call a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care to get an estimate for 2014 Kia Sportage wheel alignment costs today.
