What to Know About 2018 Kia Niro Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Kia Niro, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Niro 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. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Niro maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2018 Kia Niro!

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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Niro perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2018 Kia Niro problems.

Overview of Essential Kia Niro Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2018 Kia Niro for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Niro'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 2018 Kia Niro. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Niro may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Kia Niro battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2018 Kia Niro running newer, longer. See Kia's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2018 Niro in the chart at the top 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2018 Kia Niro.

Routine upkeep for your Kia Niro suspension and steering system 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! 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Kia Niro's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Kia Niro services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Kia Niro? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2018 Kia Niro 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.
