What to Know About 2021 Kia Telluride Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Kia Telluride, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Telluride. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Telluride maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2021 Kia Telluride!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Kia, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Telluride's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2021 Kia Telluride problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Kia Telluride

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2021 Kia Telluride and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Telluride’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2021 Kia Telluride. 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Kia Telluride 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 Telluride stranded. Your Kia Telluride won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2021 Kia Telluride running newer, longer. To learn how often Kia recommends you have the oil changed in your 2021 Telluride, 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2021 Kia Telluride.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Kia Telluride can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Kia Telluride 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. Components within your Kia Telluride's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Kia Telluride 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. 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 Telluride engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Kia Telluride radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2021 Kia Telluride 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.

Questions About 2021 Kia Telluride Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2021 Kia Telluride. Get answers to common Kia Telluride maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Kia Telluride? You know your Kia Telluride 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 Telluride? If your Kia Telluride has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  Why are my Kia dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Kia Telluride in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
