How often should I service my 2017 Kia Forte5?

Here’s Why 2017 Kia Forte5 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Kia Forte5 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Forte5. 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 Forte5 maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2017 Kia Forte5!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Kia, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Forte5 perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2017 Kia Forte5 problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Kia Forte5

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2017 Kia Forte5 and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Forte5'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 2017 Kia Forte5. 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Forte5 may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 Forte5 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Forte5) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Kia Forte5 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 help your 2017 Kia Forte5's engine run smoother. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2017 Forte5, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2017 Kia Forte5.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Kia Forte5? You know your Kia Forte5 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 Forte5 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 Forte5 engines.
  • 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 Forte5 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
