Your Guide to 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Hyundai Santa Fe and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Santa Fe 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 Santa Fe, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe!

Hyundai knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Santa Fe perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Hyundai Santa Fe Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Santa Fe's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe be ready for a new battery? 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. 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 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe engine. See Hyundai's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2016 Santa Fe in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe.

Maintaining your Hyundai Santa Fe 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! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Hyundai Santa Fe 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 Santa Fe's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Hyundai Santa Fe 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. 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.
