What to Know About 2020 Kia Sportage Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Kia Sportage and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, 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. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Sportage maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2020 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; 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. 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 2020 Kia Sportage problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Kia Sportage Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2020 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. 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.

Could your 2020 Kia Sportage be ready for a new battery? 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. 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 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2020 Kia Sportage engine. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2020 Sportage, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2020 Kia Sportage? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Kia Sportage steering and suspension system 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 the appropriate Kia Sportage steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. 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 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. Need a new Kia Sportage radiator? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2020 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.

2020 Kia Sportage Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2020 Kia Sportage. Get answers to common Kia Sportage maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting 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 switch my Kia Sportage to high mileage oil? 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? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Kia Sportage to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
