How often should I service my 2021 Hyundai Sonata?
You want your Hyundai Sonata to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Sonata could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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 2021 Hyundai Sonata maintenance schedule!
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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2021 Hyundai Sonata problems in the future.
Bring your 2021 Hyundai Sonata to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. 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.
Could your 2021 Hyundai Sonata be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 prevent premature wear on your 2021 Hyundai Sonata engine. See Hyundai's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2021 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 2021 Hyundai Sonata.
Routine upkeep for your Hyundai Sonata suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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, 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!). 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. Need a new Hyundai Sonata radiator? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2021 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.
