Your Guide to 2017 Kia Sportage Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Kia Sportage and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Sportage 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 Sportage, 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 2017 Kia Sportage!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Kia, your vehicle manufacturer. 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Sportage perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2017 Kia Sportage problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Kia Sportage

Bring your 2017 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 2017 Kia Sportage be ready for a new battery? 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. 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 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 2017 Kia Sportage engine. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2017 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. 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 2017 Kia Sportage.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Kia Sportage can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Kia Sportage steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Kia Sportage's steering system require 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!). 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 Sportage engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Kia Sportage? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2017 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.
