Your Guide to 2012 Kia Forte Koup Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Kia Forte Koup to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Forte Koup. 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 Forte Koup maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2012 Kia Forte Koup!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Kia themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; 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 Forte Koup's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2012 Kia Forte Koup problems.

Overview of Essential Kia Forte Koup Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Kia Forte Koup and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Forte Koup's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2012 Kia Forte Koup be ready for a new battery? 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 Kia Forte Koup 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Forte Koup stranded. Your Kia Forte Koup won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2012 Kia Forte Koup engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2012 Forte Koup. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2012 Kia Forte Koup.

Maintaining your Kia Forte Koup steering and suspension 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, provide the appropriate Kia Forte Koup steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Kia Forte Koup's steering system require regular maintenance.

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