What to Know About 2016 Kia Soul EV Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Kia Soul EV to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Soul EV. 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 Soul EV maintenance. Just follow your 2016 Kia Soul EV maintenance schedule!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like 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 Soul EV running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2016 Kia Soul EV problems.

Overview of Essential Kia Soul EV Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Kia Soul EV for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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 Soul EV'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 2016 Kia Soul EV? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Soul EV may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Kia Soul EV 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 Soul EV stranded. Your Kia Soul EV could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2016 Kia Soul EV running newer, longer. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2016 Soul EV, check out the information table at the beginning 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2016 Kia Soul EV? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Kia Soul EV 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! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Kia Soul EV steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Kia Soul EV's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Kia Soul EV services, 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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Kia Soul EV cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Kia Soul EV radiator? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2016 Kia Soul EV 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.

2016 Kia Soul EV Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2016 Kia Soul EV. Get answers to common Kia Soul EV maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Kia Soul EV? You know your Kia Soul EV 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 does my Kia Soul EV 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 Soul EV engines.
  •  Why are my Kia dashboard lights on? 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 Soul EV to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
