Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2020 Kia Soul

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2020 Kia Soul?

Here’s Why 2020 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. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Soul, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2020 Kia Soul maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Kia themselves. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Soul running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2020 Kia Soul problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Kia Soul Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2020 Kia Soul to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2020 Kia Soul? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

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 2020 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 2020 Soul. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2020 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Kia Soul's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Kia Soul maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Kia Soul’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

2020 Kia Soul Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2020 Kia Soul. Get answers to common Kia Soul maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit 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 should I switch my Kia Soul to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Kia Soul engines.
  • Can Kia dashboard warning lights wait? 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
