Your Guide to 2012 Hyundai Tucson Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Hyundai Tucson to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Tucson 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 Tucson maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2012 Hyundai Tucson 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. 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Tucson's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2012 Hyundai Tucson problems later.

Overview of Essential Hyundai Tucson Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2012 Hyundai Tucson for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Tucson's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2012 Hyundai Tucson. Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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 Tucson 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Tucson) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Hyundai Tucson could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2012 Hyundai Tucson running newer, longer. See Hyundai's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2012 Tucson in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2012 Hyundai Tucson.

Maintaining your Hyundai Tucson steering and suspension 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, perform Hyundai Tucson 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 Tucson's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Hyundai Tucson 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.

2012 Hyundai Tucson Maintenance Q&A

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

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Hyundai Tucson? 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 Tucson need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Hyundai Tucson? 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 Hyundai dashboard warning lights wait? 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 Tucson, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
