Your Kia Sportage isn’t just a car. It’s a part of your lifestyle. Keep it running newer, longer and schedule your routine maintenance appointment today.
How often should I service my 2007 Kia Sportage?
Take care of your Kia Sportage and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Sportage could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Sportage maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2007 Kia Sportage!
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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Sportage running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2007 Kia Sportage problems.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2007 Kia Sportage for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Sportage. 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 2007 Kia Sportage be ready for a new battery? 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Kia Sportage 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! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Kia Sportage could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2007 Kia Sportage engine. See Kia's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2007 Sportage in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2007 Kia Sportage.
Maintaining your Kia Sportage steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle.
