Here’s Why 2017 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 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, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin.
Just follow your 2017 Kia Soul maintenance schedule!
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
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,
increase your vehicle safety,
and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2017 Kia Soul problems later.
Overview of Essential Kia Soul Maintenance Needs
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2017 Kia Soul for factory-recommended routine maintenance
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.
Could your 2017 Kia Soul be ready for a new battery?
In general, car batteries only last 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.
Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Soul) stuck in the middle of nowhere.
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 2017 Kia Soul running newer, longer.

What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Kia Soul?
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 need high mileage oil?
Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Kia Soul? 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.
Why are my Kia dashboard lights on?
Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Kia Soul in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
