Here’s Why 1999 Hyundai Sonata Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Hyundai Sonata, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Sonata 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. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Sonata maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1999 Hyundai Sonata!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Hyundai, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Sonata running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1999 Hyundai Sonata problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Hyundai Sonata Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1999 Hyundai Sonata 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Sonata’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1999 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Hyundai Sonata battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 Sonata won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1999 Hyundai Sonata engine. See Hyundai's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1999 Sonata in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1999 Hyundai Sonata? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Hyundai Sonata steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, 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. Components within your Hyundai Sonata's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Hyundai Sonata 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!). 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 Sonata engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Hyundai Sonata radiator? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1999 Hyundai Sonata maintenance.

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

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Hyundai Sonata? You know your Hyundai Sonata better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Hyundai Sonata to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Hyundai Sonata engines.
  •  Why are my Hyundai dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Hyundai Sonata to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
