2021 Kia Sportage Maintenance Schedule

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2021 Kia Sportage?

Your Guide to 2021 Kia Sportage Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Kia Sportage to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Sportage. But how do you know what service to get and when? 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 2021 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Sportage perform better, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2021 Kia Sportage problems.

Overview of Essential Kia Sportage Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2021 Kia Sportage 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. 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 2021 Kia Sportage be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Sportage may need a replacement battery sooner. 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, 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.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2021 Kia Sportage engine. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2021 Sportage, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2021 Kia Sportage.

Routine upkeep for your Kia Sportage suspension and steering system 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 fall behind on routine Kia Sportage maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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'll fix it.

  • When should I have Kia Sportage alignment checked? 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? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Kia Sportage? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  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.
