Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe?

Here’s Why 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Hyundai Santa Fe, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Santa Fe. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Santa Fe maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe maintenance schedule!

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. 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 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Hyundai Santa Fe

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Could your 2021 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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 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 prevent premature wear on your 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe engine. See Hyundai's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2021 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Hyundai Santa Fe can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. 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.

Without routine Hyundai Santa Fe maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Hyundai Santa Fe’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Hyundai Santa Fe radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2021 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.

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe. Get answers to common Hyundai Santa Fe maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit 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.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Hyundai? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Hyundai Santa Fe, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
