Your Guide to 2017 Kia Sorento Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Kia Sorento and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper 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. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Sorento maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2017 Kia Sorento maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Kia, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Sorento running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2017 Kia Sorento problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Kia Sorento Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2017 Kia Sorento for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Sorento’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2017 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Kia Sorento battery. 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 Sorento stranded. Your Kia Sorento 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 2017 Kia Sorento running newer, longer. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2017 Sorento, check out the information table at the beginning 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2017 Kia Sorento? We can help with that, too!

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. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, 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. Components within your Kia Sorento's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Kia Sorento 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!). 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. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Kia Sorento? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2017 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.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2017 Kia Sorento. Get answers to common Kia Sorento maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Kia Sorento? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2017 Sorento is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When does my Kia Sorento need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Kia Sorento engines.
  • Can Kia dashboard warning lights wait? 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
