What is the maintenance schedule for the 2013 Kia Soul?

Here’s Why 2013 Kia Soul Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Kia Soul to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Soul could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2013 Kia Soul!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Kia, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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. 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 2013 Kia Soul problems later.

Overview of Essential Kia Soul Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2013 Kia Soul for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Soul. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2013 Kia Soul. 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 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. 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2013 Kia Soul running newer, longer. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2013 Soul, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2013 Kia Soul? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Kia Soul can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Kia Soul steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Kia Soul's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Kia Soul maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Kia Soul cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Kia Soul 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 2013 Kia Soul 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.

2013 Kia Soul Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2013 Kia Soul. Get answers to common Kia Soul maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Kia Soul alignment checked? You know your Kia Soul 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 should I switch my Kia Soul to high mileage oil? If your Kia Soul 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!
  •  Why are my Kia dashboard lights on? 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, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
