How often should I service my 2016 Kia Sorento?

Here’s Why 2016 Kia Sorento Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Kia Sorento to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Sorento. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Sorento, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2016 Kia Sorento maintenance schedule!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Sorento perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2016 Kia Sorento problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Kia Sorento Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2016 Kia Sorento to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Sorento. 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 2016 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Sorento may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Kia Sorento battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Sorento stranded. Your Kia Sorento won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2016 Kia Sorento's engine run smoother. See Kia's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2016 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2016 Kia Sorento.

Routine upkeep for your Kia Sorento suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Kia Sorento steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Kia Sorento's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Kia Sorento maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. Need a new Kia Sorento radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2016 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.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Kia Sorento? 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 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? 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 Sorento, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
