What to Know About 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Hyundai Santa Fe and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Santa Fe has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Santa Fe maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Hyundai, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Hyundai Santa Fe

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe. 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 Santa Fe may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 Santa Fe 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Santa Fe stranded. Your Hyundai Santa Fe could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2013 Santa Fe. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Hyundai Santa Fe steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, 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.

Without routine Hyundai Santa Fe maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Hyundai Santa Fe? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2013 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.

Questions About 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe. Get answers to common Hyundai Santa Fe maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • 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 does my Hyundai Santa Fe need high mileage oil? If your Hyundai Santa Fe 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 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.
