Your Guide to 2014 Kia Sportage Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Kia Sportage to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Sportage. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Sportage maintenance. Just follow your 2014 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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Sportage's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2014 Kia Sportage problems.

Overview of Essential Kia Sportage Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2014 Kia Sportage 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. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2014 Kia Sportage? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Kia Sportage battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Sportage) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Kia Sportage won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2014 Kia Sportage 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 2014 Sportage. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 2014 Kia Sportage.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Kia Sportage can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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, 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 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!). 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 Sportage’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Kia Sportage radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2014 Kia Sportage maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2014 Kia Sportage. Get answers to common Kia Sportage maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Kia Sportage? 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 should I use high mileage oil in my Kia Sportage? 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 Sportage engines.
  •  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 Sportage, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
