How often should I service my 2021 Kia Seltos?

Your Guide to 2021 Kia Seltos Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Kia Seltos to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Seltos. 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 Seltos maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2021 Kia Seltos!

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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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 Seltos's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2021 Kia Seltos problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Kia Seltos

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2021 Kia Seltos 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 Seltos’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2021 Kia Seltos. 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Kia Seltos battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Seltos stranded. Your Kia Seltos 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2021 Kia Seltos running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2021 Seltos. 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2021 Kia Seltos.

Routine upkeep for your Kia Seltos suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Kia Seltos suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Kia Seltos's steering and suspension system.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Kia Seltos? You know your Kia Seltos better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Kia Seltos need high mileage oil? If your Kia Seltos 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? 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 Seltos to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
