You want your Kia Forte Koup to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Forte Koup could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark.

Just follow your 2013 Kia Forte Koup maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Kia themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Forte Koup perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2013 Kia Forte Koup problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Kia Forte Koup

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2013 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 2013 Kia Forte Koup be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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. 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 Forte Koup won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
