Your Guide to 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Hyundai Santa Fe to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Santa Fe has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Santa Fe, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe 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, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Santa Fe perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe problems.

Overview of Essential Hyundai Santa Fe Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe and our technicians will jump right in 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Santa Fe. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe? 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 Santa Fe battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Santa Fe could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe's engine run smoother. To learn how often Hyundai recommends you have the oil changed in your 2006 Santa Fe, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe.

Routine upkeep for your Hyundai Santa Fe suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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 Hyundai Santa Fe steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Hyundai Santa Fe's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Hyundai Santa Fe services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Hyundai Santa Fe cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Hyundai Santa Fe radiator? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Hyundai Santa Fe? 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 Santa Fe to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Hyundai Santa Fe? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my Hyundai dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Hyundai Santa Fe 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.
