Your Guide to 2020 Kia Rio Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Kia Rio, 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 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 2020 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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Rio's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2020 Kia Rio problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Kia Rio Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2020 Kia Rio to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. 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 2020 Kia Rio be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Kia Rio battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Rio stranded. 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 2020 Kia Rio's engine run smoother. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2020 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. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2020 Kia Rio.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Kia Rio can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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, provide Kia Rio steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Kia Rio's steering system require 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!). 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 your Kia Rio radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2020 Kia Rio maintenance.

Don’t wait until something goes wrong with your car. Visit your nearest location for proactive maintenance today.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2020 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!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Kia? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Kia Rio in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
