Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2012 Hyundai Elantra

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2012 Hyundai Elantra?

Here’s Why 2012 Hyundai Elantra Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Hyundai Elantra to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Elantra 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. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Elantra, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2012 Hyundai Elantra maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Hyundai themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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 Elantra's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2012 Hyundai Elantra problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Hyundai Elantra

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Hyundai Elantra and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 Elantra’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2012 Hyundai Elantra. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Hyundai Elantra battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Elantra) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Hyundai Elantra won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2012 Hyundai Elantra engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2012 Elantra. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2012 Hyundai Elantra? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Hyundai Elantra can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. 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 Elantra 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Hyundai Elantra's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Hyundai Elantra maintenance, 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 Elantra cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Hyundai Elantra? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2012 Hyundai Elantra maintenance.

2012 Hyundai Elantra Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2012 Hyundai Elantra. Get answers to common Hyundai Elantra maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Hyundai Elantra alignment checked? 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 does my Hyundai Elantra need high mileage oil? If your Hyundai Elantra has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Hyundai dashboard warning lights wait? 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 Elantra to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
