2021 Kia Sorento Maintenance

Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2021 Kia Sorento

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2021 Kia Sorento?

Here’s Why 2021 Kia Sorento Scheduled Maintenance Matters

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. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Sorento maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2021 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. 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Sorento running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2021 Kia Sorento problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Kia Sorento Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2021 Kia Sorento and an expert technician will begin by performing 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2021 Kia Sorento. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Kia Sorento 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 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 help your 2021 Kia Sorento's engine run smoother. See Kia's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2021 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2021 Kia Sorento? We can help with that, too!

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!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system 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.

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. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Kia Sorento engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Kia Sorento radiator? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2021 Kia Sorento maintenance.

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

Questions About 2021 Kia Sorento Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2021 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? 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 Kia dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Kia Sorento in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
