What is the maintenance schedule for the 2015 Kia Optima?

Here’s Why 2015 Kia Optima Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Kia Optima and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Optima has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Optima, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2015 Kia Optima!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Kia, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Optima running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2015 Kia Optima problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Kia Optima

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2015 Kia Optima 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Optima'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 2015 Kia Optima. 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 Optima 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Optima) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Kia Optima could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2015 Kia Optima running newer, longer. See Kia's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2015 Optima 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2015 Kia Optima? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Kia Optima steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Kia Optima suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Kia Optima's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Kia Optima 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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Kia Optima cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Kia Optima? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it.

Questions About 2015 Kia Optima Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2015 Kia Optima. Get answers to common Kia Optima maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Kia Optima? You know your Kia Optima 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 Optima? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Kia Optima? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Kia? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Kia Optima 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.
