Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2013 Kia Rio

How often should I service my 2013 Kia Rio?

Here’s Why 2013 Kia Rio Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Kia Rio and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Rio could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Rio maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2013 Kia Rio!

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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Rio running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2013 Kia Rio problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Kia Rio

Bring your 2013 Kia Rio to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with 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 Rio's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2013 Kia Rio? 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. 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 Rio 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 Rio won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2013 Kia Rio engine. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2013 Rio, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2013 Kia Rio? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Kia Rio steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Kia Rio suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Kia Rio's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Kia Rio maintenance, 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 Rio’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Kia Rio radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2013 Kia Rio 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.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2013 Kia Rio. Get answers to common Kia Rio maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Kia Rio? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2013 Rio is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Kia Rio to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Kia Rio engines.
  •  Why are my Kia dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Kia Rio to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
