Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2017 Kia Niro

How often should I service my 2017 Kia Niro?

Here’s Why 2017 Kia Niro Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Kia Niro to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Niro. 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 Niro, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2017 Kia Niro maintenance schedule!

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; 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 Niro's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2017 Kia Niro problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Kia Niro

Bring your 2017 Kia Niro to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Niro’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2017 Kia Niro 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. 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 Niro 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. 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 Niro won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2017 Kia Niro running newer, longer. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2017 Niro, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 2017 Kia Niro.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Kia Niro 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 Niro steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Kia Niro's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Kia Niro 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!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Kia Niro’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Kia Niro radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2017 Kia Niro maintenance and repairs.

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

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Kia Niro? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Kia Niro to high mileage oil? If your Kia Niro 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? 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 Niro, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
