Your Guide to 2018 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 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Hyundai, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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 help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe problems later.

Overview of Essential Hyundai Santa Fe Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2018 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. 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. 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 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe engine. See Hyundai's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2018 Santa Fe in the chart at the top 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 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Hyundai Santa Fe can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Hyundai Santa Fe's steering system with 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. 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 Santa Fe engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.
