Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2018 Kia Sportage

What Can I Expect with Kia Sportage Alignment?

Alignment services involve precise 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, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Bring your 2018 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. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

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 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 2018 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 squealing tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Sportage if your wheel alignment needs attention.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Kia Sportage?

On a budget? Kia Sportage wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. 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. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 2018 Kia Sportage wheel alignment estimate.
