Your Guide to 2000 Hyundai Sonata Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Hyundai Sonata to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Sonata has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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 Sonata maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2000 Hyundai Sonata!

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, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Sonata perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2000 Hyundai Sonata problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Hyundai Sonata

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2000 Hyundai Sonata for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2000 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. 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 Sonata 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Sonata stranded. Your Hyundai Sonata won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2000 Hyundai Sonata running newer, longer. See Hyundai's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2000 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. 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 2000 Hyundai Sonata.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Hyundai Sonata can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. 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 Sonata 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 Sonata's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Hyundai Sonata maintenance, 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 Sonata cooling, heating, and climate control system.

  • When should I have Hyundai Sonata alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2000 Sonata is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Hyundai Sonata to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Hyundai Sonata? 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 Sonata, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
