Your Guide to 2019 Kia Soul EV Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Kia Soul EV to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Soul EV has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Soul EV, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2019 Kia Soul EV!

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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2019 Kia Soul EV problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Kia Soul EV Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2019 Kia Soul EV 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Soul EV. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2019 Kia Soul EV? 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 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 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 2019 Kia Soul EV running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2019 Soul EV. 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 2019 Kia Soul EV? We can help with that, too!

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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Kia Soul EV's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Kia Soul EV 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. 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.

  • When should I have Kia Soul EV alignment checked? 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? 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
