What to Know About 2013 Kia Sportage Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Kia Sportage and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Sportage. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Sportage maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2013 Kia Sportage maintenance schedule!

Kia knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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 Sportage perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2013 Kia Sportage problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Kia Sportage

Bring your 2013 Kia Sportage 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Sportage's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2013 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. 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Sportage) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Kia Sportage 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 2013 Kia Sportage running newer, longer. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2013 Sportage, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2013 Kia Sportage.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Kia Sportage 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. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Kia Sportage 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 Sportage's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Kia Sportage 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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Kia Sportage cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Kia Sportage radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2013 Kia Sportage maintenance.

  • When should I have Kia Sportage alignment checked? You know your Kia Sportage 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 Sportage need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Kia Sportage? 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.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Kia? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Kia Sportage 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.
