Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2017 Kia Sportage

Why Is Kia Sportage Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Kia Sportage's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. 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. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the lifespan of your tires increases, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Bring your 2017 Kia Sportage in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Kia’s recommended measurements. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Kia Sportage

It’s wise to have your Kia Sportage alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2017 Kia Sportage: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, 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. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Sportage if your wheel alignment needs attention.

Costs for Kia Sportage Alignment Services

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. 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. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 2017 Kia Sportage wheel alignment estimate.
