Here’s Why 2011 Kia Soul Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Kia Soul and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Soul 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 Soul maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2011 Kia Soul maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Kia, your vehicle manufacturer. 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Soul perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2011 Kia Soul problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Kia Soul Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2011 Kia Soul and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Soul’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2011 Kia Soul. In general, car batteries only last 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 Soul battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Kia Soul won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2011 Kia Soul's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2011 Soul. 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2011 Kia Soul.

Maintaining your Kia Soul steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Kia Soul suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Kia Soul's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Kia Soul maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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!). 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 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Kia Soul radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2011 Kia Soul maintenance.

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