Your Guide to 2016 Kia Rio Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Kia Rio and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Rio. 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 Rio, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2016 Kia Rio maintenance schedule!

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. 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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Rio perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2016 Kia Rio problems later.

Overview of Essential Kia Rio Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2016 Kia Rio 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Rio. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2016 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Kia Rio battery. 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Rio stranded. Your Kia Rio 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 2016 Kia Rio running newer, longer. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2016 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2016 Kia Rio.

Routine upkeep for your Kia Rio suspension and steering 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 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. Components within your Kia Rio's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Kia Rio maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Kia Rio engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Kia Rio? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2016 Kia Rio maintenance.

2016 Kia Rio Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2016 Kia Rio. Get answers to common Kia Rio maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Kia Rio? 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 use high mileage oil in my Kia Rio? 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.
  • 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 Rio, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
