What to Know About 2018 Kia Soul EV Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Kia Soul EV, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Soul EV has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Soul EV, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2018 Kia Soul EV!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Kia themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Soul EV's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2018 Kia Soul EV problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Kia Soul EV

Bring your 2018 Kia Soul EV to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Soul EV’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2018 Kia Soul EV. 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. 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Soul EV) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Kia Soul EV won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2018 Kia Soul EV engine. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2018 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2018 Kia Soul EV.

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, perform Kia Soul EV 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 Soul EV's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Kia Soul EV 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 Soul EV engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Kia Soul EV radiator in need of replacement? 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 the place to go for 2018 Kia Soul EV maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Kia Soul EV? 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 does my Kia Soul EV need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Kia Soul EV? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • 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 Soul EV, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
