Your Guide to 2018 Hyundai Elantra Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Hyundai Elantra to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Elantra. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Elantra maintenance. Just follow your 2018 Hyundai Elantra maintenance schedule!

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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Elantra running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Hyundai Elantra problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Hyundai Elantra Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2018 Hyundai Elantra for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Elantra's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2018 Hyundai Elantra? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Hyundai Elantra won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2018 Hyundai Elantra's engine run smoother. To learn how often Hyundai recommends you have the oil changed in your 2018 Elantra, 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2018 Hyundai Elantra.

Maintaining your Hyundai Elantra steering and suspension 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! 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. Components within your Hyundai Elantra's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Hyundai Elantra maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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 Elantra’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Hyundai Elantra? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2018 Hyundai Elantra maintenance.

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

2018 Hyundai Elantra Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 Hyundai Elantra. Get answers to common Hyundai Elantra maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Hyundai Elantra? 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? 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 Elantra engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Hyundai? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Hyundai Elantra, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
