Your Guide to 2012 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? 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 2012 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Sonata running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2012 Hyundai Sonata problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Hyundai Sonata

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Hyundai Sonata 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. 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 2012 Hyundai Sonata? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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. 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2012 Hyundai Sonata running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2012 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 2012 Hyundai Sonata? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Hyundai Sonata steering and suspension system 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. 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Hyundai Sonata's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Hyundai Sonata maintenance, 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. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2012 Hyundai Sonata maintenance.

2012 Hyundai Sonata Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2012 Hyundai Sonata. Get answers to common Hyundai Sonata maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Hyundai Sonata alignment checked? 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 should I use high mileage oil in my Hyundai Sonata? 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? 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
