Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2016 Kia Forte

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2016 Kia Forte?

Here’s Why 2016 Kia Forte Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Kia Forte, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Forte could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Forte, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2016 Kia Forte!

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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Forte's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2016 Kia Forte problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Kia Forte Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2016 Kia Forte and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Forte. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 2016 Kia Forte be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Forte may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Kia Forte 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 Forte) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Kia Forte could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2016 Kia Forte running newer, longer. See Kia's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2016 Forte 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. 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 2016 Kia Forte.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Kia Forte can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Kia Forte steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Kia Forte's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Kia Forte services, 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!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Kia Forte engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Kia Forte radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too.
