Your Guide to 1989 Hyundai Sonata Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Hyundai Sonata to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Sonata. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Sonata maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1989 Hyundai Sonata!

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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Sonata running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1989 Hyundai Sonata problems later.

Overview of Essential Hyundai Sonata Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1989 Hyundai Sonata to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Sonata'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 1989 Hyundai Sonata. 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 Sonata may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Hyundai Sonata 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! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Sonata) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Hyundai Sonata won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1989 Hyundai Sonata's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1989 Sonata. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1989 Hyundai Sonata? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Hyundai Sonata suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Hyundai Sonata suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Hyundai Sonata's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Hyundai Sonata services, 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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Hyundai Sonata cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Hyundai Sonata? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1989 Hyundai Sonata maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.
