What to Know About 2013 Kia Sorento Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Kia Sorento, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Sorento 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. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Sorento maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2013 Kia Sorento!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Kia themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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 Sorento's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2013 Kia Sorento problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Kia Sorento Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2013 Kia Sorento and our technicians will jump right in 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.

Could your 2013 Kia Sorento 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Kia Sorento battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Sorento) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Kia Sorento 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 2013 Kia Sorento's engine run smoother. See Kia's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2013 Sorento 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2013 Kia Sorento.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Kia Sorento can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. 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, provide the appropriate Kia Sorento 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 Sorento's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Kia Sorento 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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Kia Sorento cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Kia Sorento radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2013 Kia Sorento maintenance and repairs.
