Your Guide to 2018 Kia Soul Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Kia Soul and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Soul. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Soul maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2018 Kia Soul!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Kia themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Soul running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Kia Soul problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Kia Soul

Bring your 2018 Kia Soul to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. 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.

Could your 2018 Kia Soul be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Soul may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Kia Soul battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Soul stranded. Your Kia Soul won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2018 Kia Soul engine. See Kia's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2018 Soul in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2018 Kia Soul.

Maintaining your Kia Soul steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, 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 skip recommended Kia Soul services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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 the place to go for 2018 Kia Soul maintenance.

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

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 Kia Soul. Get answers to common Kia Soul maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Kia Soul? 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 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? 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
