2021 Kia Soul Maintenance

Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2021 Kia Soul

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2021 Kia Soul?

Here’s Why 2021 Kia Soul Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Kia Soul, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. 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. 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. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2021 Kia Soul!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Kia themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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 2021 Kia Soul problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Kia Soul Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2021 Kia Soul to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Soul's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2021 Kia Soul. In general, car batteries only last 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. 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2021 Kia Soul engine. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2021 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2021 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!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Kia Soul suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Kia Soul's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Kia Soul maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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. Is your Kia Soul radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2021 Kia Soul maintenance.

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

2021 Kia Soul Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2021 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? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2021 Soul is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Kia Soul? 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!
  • 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
