What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2019 Kia Forte?

Here’s Why 2019 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 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Forte maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2019 Kia Forte!

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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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 maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2019 Kia Forte problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Kia Forte

Bring your 2019 Kia Forte to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 2019 Kia Forte 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Kia Forte battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Forte 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2019 Kia Forte running newer, longer. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2019 Forte, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2019 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Kia Forte steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Kia Forte's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Kia Forte 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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Kia Forte cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Kia Forte radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2019 Kia Forte maintenance.

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

2019 Kia Forte Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2019 Kia Forte. Get answers to common Kia Forte maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Kia Forte? You know your Kia Forte better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Kia Forte to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Kia Forte engines.
  • 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 Forte to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
