How often does my Kia need an oil change?

If you own a traditional gasoline, hybrid, or Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) Kia vehicle, the recommended service intervals for changing the oil and oil filter can vary between 5,000 and 10,000 miles, depending on your driving habits and operating conditions. Some drivers may need to change their oil as often as every 3,000 miles, and we encourage looking at your Owner's Manual for information specific to your model or powertrain.

When should my brakes be inspected or repaired?

Pads and rotors should be inspected during every oil change or tire rotation service to help you stay ahead of irregular wear or broken components. Brake pads can often last around 20,000 miles before needing replacement, while rotors can last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles in ideal conditions.

What services can Kia of North Austin provide?

We regularly provide services of all sizes, such as tune-ups, wiper blade replacements, and engine repairs using Genuine Kia Parts.

How often should batteries be inspected?

Batteries don't have a predetermined service schedule, and we encourage drivers to have their vehicle's electrical system inspected seasonally. Hot summers and cool winters here in the Austin area have the potential to harm batteries and leave you stranded without prior symptoms. Our technicians can conduct load tests, replace alternators, and diagnose electrical issues so you can drive confidently.

How often does my vehicle need a coolant flush?

Initial coolant flushes are encouraged at around 120,000 miles, with following flushes conducted every 30,000 miles or five years. Like the oil in your engine, the coolant system keeps components cool by pumping a water or antifreeze mixture through radiators and hoses. Over time, coolant liquid can evaporate from the system or lose its ability to provide oxidation from occurring, which is why coolant flushes are recommended periodically.

What tire services does my vehicle need?

We encourage all drivers to stick with a recommended service schedule for tire rotations, balancing, and wheel alignments. Rotations and balancing are conducted simultaneously, helping to promote lifespan by keeping treadwear even between all corners of the vehicle. Wheel alignments aren't as popular, but help ensure that your steering wheel and tires are angled straight down the road for optimal traction and stability year-round.
