Take care of your Hyundai Excel and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Excel. 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 Excel maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1989 Hyundai Excel!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Hyundai, your vehicle manufacturer.

Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Excel perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1989 Hyundai Excel problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Hyundai Excel Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Hyundai Excel 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Excel. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1989 Hyundai Excel. 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). 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 Excel battery. 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 Excel) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Hyundai Excel won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1989 Hyundai Excel's engine run smoother. To learn how often Hyundai recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 Excel, 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1989 Hyundai Excel.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Hyundai Excel 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 Excel 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Hyundai Excel's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Hyundai Excel 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. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Hyundai Excel engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Hyundai Excel? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1989 Hyundai Excel maintenance.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1989 Hyundai Excel. Get answers to common Hyundai Excel maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Hyundai Excel alignment checked? You know your Hyundai Excel better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Hyundai Excel to high mileage oil? If your Hyundai Excel 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? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Hyundai Excel in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
