Your Guide to 2017 Kia Rio Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Kia Rio and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, 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. Just follow your 2017 Kia Rio maintenance schedule!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of 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 Rio perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2017 Kia Rio problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Kia Rio Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2017 Kia Rio and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Rio’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2017 Kia Rio be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Rio may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Rio stranded. Your Kia Rio 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 prevent premature wear on your 2017 Kia Rio engine. See Kia's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2017 Rio 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 2017 Kia Rio? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Kia Rio steering and suspension 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 the appropriate Kia Rio steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Kia Rio's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Kia Rio maintenance, 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. 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. Need a new Kia Rio radiator? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2017 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.

2017 Kia Rio Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2017 Kia Rio. Get answers to common Kia Rio maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Kia Rio alignment checked? 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 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.
