What to Know About 1996 Hyundai Accent Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Hyundai Accent, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Accent has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Accent maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1996 Hyundai Accent!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Hyundai, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Accent perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1996 Hyundai Accent problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Hyundai Accent Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1996 Hyundai Accent for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Accent’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1996 Hyundai Accent? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Hyundai Accent battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Accent) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Hyundai Accent won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1996 Hyundai Accent's engine run smoother. To learn how often Hyundai recommends you have the oil changed in your 1996 Accent, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1996 Hyundai Accent.

Routine upkeep for your Hyundai Accent suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Hyundai Accent steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Hyundai Accent's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Hyundai Accent services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Hyundai Accent cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Hyundai Accent radiator? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1996 Hyundai Accent maintenance and repairs.
