What to Know About 2006 Hyundai Sonata Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Hyundai Sonata and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Sonata has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Sonata, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2006 Hyundai Sonata 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, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Sonata perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2006 Hyundai Sonata problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Hyundai Sonata Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2006 Hyundai Sonata for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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.

Could your 2006 Hyundai Sonata be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to 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.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2006 Hyundai Sonata engine. To learn how often Hyundai recommends you have the oil changed in your 2006 Sonata, check out the information table at the beginning 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2006 Hyundai Sonata.

Maintaining your Hyundai Sonata steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system 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. 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 (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 got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2006 Hyundai Sonata maintenance.

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

  • 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? 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.
  •  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.
