Your Guide to 2019 Kia Sportage Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Kia Sportage, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Sportage has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Sportage maintenance. Just follow your 2019 Kia Sportage maintenance schedule!

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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2019 Kia Sportage problems later.

Overview of Essential Kia Sportage Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2019 Kia Sportage for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2019 Kia Sportage? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Sportage may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2019 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 2019 Sportage. 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 2019 Kia Sportage.

Routine upkeep for your Kia Sportage suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! 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!). 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 one-stop shop for 2019 Kia Sportage maintenance and repairs.

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