What to Know About 2004 Hyundai Sonata Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Hyundai Sonata and it'll take care of you. 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. But how do you know what service to get and when? 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 2004 Hyundai Sonata!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Hyundai themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Sonata's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2004 Hyundai Sonata problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Hyundai Sonata Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2004 Hyundai Sonata 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Sonata. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2004 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Sonata) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Hyundai Sonata won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2004 Hyundai Sonata's engine run smoother. To learn how often Hyundai recommends you have the oil changed in your 2004 Sonata, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2004 Hyundai Sonata.

Routine upkeep for your Hyundai Sonata suspension and steering system 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. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Hyundai Sonata steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Hyundai Sonata's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Hyundai Sonata maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. Is your Hyundai Sonata radiator in need of replacement? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2004 Hyundai Sonata 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.

2004 Hyundai Sonata Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2004 Hyundai Sonata. Get answers to common Hyundai Sonata maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Hyundai Sonata? 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 does my Hyundai Sonata need high mileage oil? If your Hyundai Sonata has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Hyundai? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Hyundai Sonata in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
