Overview of Essential Hyundai Veloster Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2012 Hyundai Veloster to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Veloster’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 Veloster? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Veloster may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Hyundai Veloster battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Veloster won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2012 Hyundai Veloster's engine run smoother. To learn how often Hyundai recommends you have the oil changed in your 2012 Veloster, 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. 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 Veloster.

Routine upkeep for your Hyundai Veloster 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. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Hyundai Veloster 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 Veloster's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Hyundai Veloster services, 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. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Hyundai Veloster’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Hyundai Veloster? 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 2012 Hyundai Veloster maintenance.

Questions About 2012 Hyundai Veloster Maintenance

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

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