Your Kia Optima isn’t just a car. It’s a part of your lifestyle. Keep it running newer, longer and schedule your routine maintenance appointment today.
How often should I service my 2020 Kia Optima?
When it comes to your Kia Optima, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Optima. 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 Optima maintenance. Just follow your 2020 Kia Optima maintenance schedule!
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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Optima running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2020 Kia Optima problems.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2020 Kia Optima 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 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 2020 Kia Optima. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Kia Optima battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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 Optima could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
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 2020 Kia Optima running newer, longer. See Kia's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2020 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. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2020 Kia Optima? We can help with that, too!
