What to Know About 2020 Kia Forte Scheduled Maintenance

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. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Forte maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2020 Kia Forte!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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 perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2020 Kia Forte problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Kia Forte Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2020 Kia Forte for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with 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's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2020 Kia Forte. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Kia Forte battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2020 Kia Forte engine. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2020 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. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2020 Kia Forte? We can help with that, too!

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. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system 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. 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 skip recommended Kia Forte services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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. Is your Kia Forte radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2020 Kia Forte maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2020 Kia Forte. Get answers to common Kia Forte maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting 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 use high mileage oil in my Kia Forte? 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? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Kia Forte, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
