Your Guide to 2008 Kia Sorento Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Kia Sorento and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Sorento 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. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Sorento, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2008 Kia Sorento!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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 Sorento's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2008 Kia Sorento problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Kia Sorento Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2008 Kia Sorento 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Sorento's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2008 Kia Sorento? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Sorento may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Kia Sorento 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 Sorento won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2008 Kia Sorento's engine run smoother. See Kia's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2008 Sorento in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2008 Kia Sorento.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Kia Sorento 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Kia Sorento suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Kia Sorento's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Kia Sorento services, 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. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Kia Sorento’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Kia Sorento radiator? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2008 Kia Sorento maintenance and repairs.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

2008 Kia Sorento Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2008 Kia Sorento. Get answers to common Kia Sorento maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Kia Sorento? You know your Kia Sorento 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 should I switch my Kia Sorento to high mileage oil? If your Kia Sorento 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? 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 Sorento to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
