What is the maintenance schedule for the 2016 Kia Sportage?

Here’s Why 2016 Kia Sportage Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Kia Sportage and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Sportage has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Sportage maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2016 Kia Sportage!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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 Sportage running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2016 Kia Sportage problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Kia Sportage

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Kia Sportage for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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 Sportage’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2016 Kia Sportage? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Sportage stranded. Your Kia Sportage could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2016 Kia Sportage engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2016 Sportage. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2016 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. 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 fall behind on routine Kia Sportage 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!). 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. Need a new Kia Sportage radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2016 Kia Sportage maintenance.
