You want your Hyundai Accent to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Accent has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more.

Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2012 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Accent's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2012 Hyundai Accent problems later.

Overview of Essential Hyundai Accent Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Hyundai Accent and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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.

Could your 2012 Hyundai Accent be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Accent may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2012 Hyundai Accent's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2012 Accent. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2012 Hyundai Accent.

Routine upkeep for your Hyundai Accent suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Hyundai Accent steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Hyundai Accent's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Hyundai Accent maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Hyundai Accent’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Hyundai Accent radiator? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2012 Hyundai Accent maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Hyundai Accent? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Hyundai Accent to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Hyundai Accent engines.
  •  Why are my Hyundai dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Hyundai Accent to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
