Your Guide to 2018 Kia Cadenza Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Kia Cadenza to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Cadenza could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Cadenza, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2018 Kia Cadenza!

Kia 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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Cadenza perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Kia Cadenza problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Kia Cadenza Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2018 Kia Cadenza 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Cadenza’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2018 Kia Cadenza. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Cadenza may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Kia Cadenza 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. 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 Kia Cadenza won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2018 Kia Cadenza's engine run smoother. See Kia's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2018 Cadenza in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2018 Kia Cadenza.

Routine upkeep for your Kia Cadenza suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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 Kia Cadenza 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 Kia Cadenza's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Kia Cadenza maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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!). 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 Kia Cadenza’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Kia Cadenza? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2018 Kia Cadenza maintenance and repairs.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

2018 Kia Cadenza Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 Kia Cadenza. Get answers to common Kia Cadenza maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Kia Cadenza? 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 switch my Kia Cadenza to high mileage oil? If your Kia Cadenza 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 Kia? 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 Kia Cadenza to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
