Your Kia Maintenance Schedule

There's a lot of work that goes into owning a car, especially if you want to keep yours in good shape for many miles to come. The best way to make sure your Kia lasts a long time and runs smoothly the whole time you drive it is to schedule regular maintenance. In fact, a little bit of maintenance can save you tons of potential repair costs. One of the toughest parts about keeping up with maintenance on your Kia is knowing when it's time to take your car to a mechanic. The best thing you can do is talk with your local Kia dealer and figure out a schedule for when you can take your car in. If you're in the Madison, WI, area, the best place to schedule your Kia service is Russ Darrow Kia of Madison.

Finding Your Kia’s Maintenance Schedule

Determining how often you need to have your Kia serviced starts with figuring out the recommended intervals between various types of service. For example, your tires need to be changed a lot more often than transmission fluid but not nearly as often as you should change your oil. You can find more information about the recommended intervals between each type of service by reading your owner's manual or talking to a mechanic.

In addition to keeping up with the little maintenance tasks, you should also have a tune-up done at certain milestones to make sure you're keeping everything in good shape. A lot of mechanics will recommend you have a 30,000, 60,000 and 90,000-mile maintenance appointment at the very least. However, you should never wait until the next maintenance appointment if you think there's something wrong with your Kia.
