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, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Kia. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When your suspension is aligned to Kia’s optimal measurements, all of your tires experience equal pressure. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2016 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 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 2016 Kia Sportage: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when 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. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 2016 Kia Sportage wheel alignment estimate.
