Overview of Essential Kia Soul Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Kia Soul 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. 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.

Could your 2016 Kia Soul be ready for a new battery? 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 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Kia Soul battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Soul stranded. Your Kia Soul could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2016 Kia Soul 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 2016 Soul. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2016 Kia Soul.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Kia Soul can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled!
