Your Guide to 2019 Kia Rio Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Kia Rio, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Rio has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Rio maintenance. Just follow your 2019 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Rio's life, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2019 Kia Rio problems later.

Overview of Essential Kia Rio Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2019 Kia Rio for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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.

Could your 2019 Kia Rio be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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. 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.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2019 Kia Rio's engine run smoother. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2019 Rio, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 2019 Kia Rio? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Kia Rio suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Kia Rio's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Kia Rio 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 Rio cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Kia Rio radiator? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2019 Kia Rio maintenance.

2019 Kia Rio Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2019 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? If your Kia Rio has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  Why are my Kia dashboard lights on? 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
