2021 Kia K5 Maintenance

2021 Kia K5 Maintenance Schedule

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2021 Kia K5?

Here’s Why 2021 Kia K5 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Kia K5 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your K5 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine K5 maintenance. Just follow your 2021 Kia K5 maintenance schedule!

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. 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; 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 K5 perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2021 Kia K5 problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Kia K5

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2021 Kia K5 for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your K5’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2021 Kia K5 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). 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 K5 battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your K5 stranded. Your Kia K5 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2021 Kia K5's engine run smoother. See Kia's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2021 K5 in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 2021 Kia K5.

Routine upkeep for your Kia K5 suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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 K5 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Kia K5's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Kia K5 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 K5 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Kia K5 radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2021 Kia K5 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.

2021 Kia K5 Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2021 Kia K5. Get answers to common Kia K5 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Kia K5? You know your Kia K5 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 K5? If your Kia K5 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Kia dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Kia K5 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
